BLM Colorado provides thousands of dollars in assistance funding and hundreds of hours of instructor time to the Colorado Wildland Fire & Incident Management Academies. These academies are held each year in January and June. The focus of the Colorado Wildfire Academy program is to provide wildland fire and all-risk incident management training to fire department personnel as well as other cooperators at the local, state and national levels. Training varies from the basic introduction to wildland fire, to advanced fire behavior and incident command courses. More than 2,000 students attend one or both of the academies each year.

In addition to the academies, many of the BLM’s local fire management programs actively train and support a variety of volunteer and paid fire department personnel each fire season.
