More than 800 students gathered in Prescott last month for the 16th annual Arizona Wildfire and Incident Management Academy.

Held at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, 888 students came from 23 states and even Canada to participate in over 50 wildfire-related classes. There, they learned about the many tools and resources necessary for protecting people and nature during times of danger.

These courses covered everything from fire behavior analysis and logistics to chain saws and public information. In addition, 100 students took part in basic firefighter training to prepare for a career as entry level firefighters.

Since its inception more than a decade ago, over 9,000 students have gone through the academy’s training.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
