The 40th Expeditionary Signal Battalion will be the first unit to conduct live fire training on Fort Huachuca’s newly constructed defensive fire range, September 14-16, 2017. The new range creates an environment where units can simulate an attack and defend their perimeter. This type of training prepares our Soldiers for potential real-world operations. On and off-post residents will see and hear noise and light displays from the training.

California National Guard Soldiers complete CAL FIRE hand crew training today, Sept. 6, at Camp Roberts. They head out today and tomorrow to the Salmon-August Complex Fire near Etna, California, the Mission Fire, near Oakhurst, California, and wherever else needed.

About 350 troops took part in the training on the baking hot hills of Camp Roberts, led by about 50 experienced CAL FIRE firefighters. The Soldiers were divided into 12 hand crews and led through six stations where they practiced everything from using fire shelters to digging trenches, chopping logs and cutting fire lines with tools such as the Pulaski, McLeod and shovel.

The troops reported to their armories Friday before the Labor Day weekend and have been training since then. They're expected to be out on the fire lines supporting CAL FIRE firefighters for the rest of September.
