This simulation is designed to expose the novice student to some of the problems and issues associated with a wildland urban interface (WUI) fire. The scenario starts with a small fire in a field of unharvested grain situated in a rural area near structures and forested areas. The fire spreads through the field and into the forest, threatening several structures in the area. There are multiple levels of response within the Incident Command System, requiring the establishment of Divisions, mutual-aid response and special resources. This simulation allows the student an opportunity to be the Incident Commander of a WUI fire.

Estimated completion time: one hour.
