Wearing bright yellow shirts and jackets, firefighters stood listening to a briefing from Evergreen Capt. Scott Martin in the early-morning chill on Saturday.
“When we’re fighting fires, put fires totally out,” Martin told the 30 Evergreen and Foothills fire department volunteers assembled for a wildland fire training exercise.
“We’re running this as a fire scenario for a lightning strike,” said Martin. “Our spread potential is high for today. The conditions are what they are.”
