CAL FIRE and the United States Forest Service (USFS), in partnership with College of theRedwoods Community Education was able to offer the required 2014 fire season hired equipment safety training. We will plan to do the same for the 2015 fire season. 

Bulldozer operators, water tenders, crew bus drivers, vehicle drivers and mechanics who have a CAL FIRE/USFS agreement or contract requiring annual safety training will need to take this mandatory class or they will not be eligible for contracts for the entire 2014 fire season. This class will offer hired vendors a better understanding of fire safety and give them the knowledge to stay safe while fighting fires during the 2014 fire season.

Command Spanish is an occupational Spanish program that teaches

just the phrases one needs in one's job.  Command Spanish

incorporates techniques that teach specific occupational language

in a limited time period.  Instead of focusing on grammar-based

materials, Command Spanish materials utilize phonetic encoding,

a highly effective system that focuses on Spanish pronunciation.

Programs are available in the areas of medical personnel, nursing,

banking, business and industry, education, law enforcement, corrections

and probation, public safety, and many other specific occupations.


The goal is to help organizations make the most of their most valuable

resource ?PEOPLE- by improving their performance. The focus is on

“tapping into the reservoir of talent and knowledge” that they have

and how they can apply that knowledge today. Getting your entire

organization involved and on the road to “putting the fun back in business”

is the goal. These seminars and workshops can be configured to meet

your organizations time frame and special needs.
