The seventh Spanish-Language TREX took place in fall of 2017, once again bringing together an international group of practitioners to share learning across fire cultures and continents. Led by a core team from the U.S., Canada and Spain, the TREX drew participants from Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and the U.S.
The main objective of this international event is to further the integration and exchange of knowledge among Spanish-speaking wildland firefighters from around the world and in the U.S. This is accomplished by working together—sharing experiences in the field while performing controlled burns and analyzing effects of wildland fires.
The Module served as a core member of the Incident Management Team, and led the Fire Effects Module
