National Wildfire Coordination Group (NWCG) Red Cards

Eleven AScIS employees currently performing Natural Resources related work on Ft. Bragg have passed the “pack test” and will receive National Wildfire Coordination Group (NWCG) Red Cards. This certification will place these employees on the National Disaster Response List. The certication requires individuals to complete four (4) required wildland fire courses and demonstrate their physical fitness by speed walking three (3) miles with a 45 lb. pack in less than 45 minutes. This status makes AScIS one of only two non-government fire crews with this level of qualifications in the region.
