There about 66 Oregon wild land firefighters who are dispatched to other areas of the country to help with current fires. While La Nina has brought cool, damp weather to most of Oregon this year; areas in Alaska, Arizona and New Mexico are experiencing some of the toughest fire conditions in a long time. Rod Nichols with the Oregon Department of Forestry says it's not just a good thing to help out our neighbors; the firefighters gain some valuable firefighting experience going to these different areas: “And they're surprisingly able to adapt quickly to these different situations, different terrain, different fuel types. And when they come back, we always fell that they have some really valuable experience because they know a whole lot more about fighting wildfires from being out there." In case you're wondering, those firefighters will be back in Oregon by the time our wild land conditions get to dangerous levels.
