It’s a busy week in Central Oregon for those training to become wildland firefighters.  40 men and women are training in Redmond and Sisters to be qualified as entry level firefighters. Lisa Clark with Central Oregon Fire Management says once they have their training they will join more than 300 other federal and state wildland firefighters this summer. “During this week they'll have a variety of classes: fire behavior, maps, GPS, units, navigating, as well as learning out to operate some of the equipment life engines and pumps."   Clark says they receive hundreds of applications for this work, but have to whittle those down to about 40. She says it’s hard work but those chosen enjoy being in the outdoors and having a good paying summer job, especially in this economy.
