Fire exercise getting underway in Sisters
The Sisters Ranger District/Cascade Division will be overseeing a live fire exercise for firefighters from around Central Oregon today.

This exercise will serve as the live fire requirement for the Joint Recruitment Academy training course and will be up to a half-acre in size.

Ignition will begin at around 9:30 a.m. and last 15-20 minutes along the 15 road, approximately three miles southwest of Sisters. Up to 50 fire professionals and seven engines will be present at the event to extinguish and mop-up the fire.

New recruits will focus on initial attack techniques, gain familiarity with assigned fire apparatus, and learn mop-up procedures for the wildland fire realm.

Firing will take place early in the morning to utilize cool temperatures and smoke may be visible early in the day. However, the fire will be 100 percent mopped up by the end of the exercise.
