Let it burn
Firefighting personnel, assigned to the 673rd Civil Engineer Squadron, conduct a controlled burn at the Infantry Platoon Battle Course on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, May 4, 2017. JBER Fire Department and U.S. Forest Service personnel worked together to manage the prescribed fires. Controlled burns consume accumulated dry brush and grass thereby reducing the risk of wildfires.
