        Eureka! and Fortine

        Hello all.

        Just bought a place at Fortine. Anyone here from that part of Mt.?

        Looking for some insight on how the structural guys and wild land guys work together for interface fires.

        Also, radio frequencies, dispatch info... anything really so I can get up to speed on what's going on in the neighborhood.

          There are only a couple cities the require EMT-I or above here in MT. Kalispell and Lockwood come to mind. The CPAT is administered in June, and I believe you need to register for it by mid February.
          Best of luck!
