Platte Canyon Wildland Fire Module

Platte Canyon WFM is a 12 person wildland fire crew, located in Bailey, Co, within the Platte Canyon Fire Protection District. The module was certified as a type 2 WFM in 2015.

Wildland Fire Modules (WFMs) provide an innovative, safe, highly mobile, logistically independent, and versatile fire resource with a primary commitment to maintain fire’s role as a natural ecological process for wildland fire management and incident operations (PMS 430).

Our season typically runs from Early May to October, traveling all around the country aiding in fire management and fire suppression.

While at home the module provides much needed fire suppression and mitigation work to the district.

Mission Statement:
We are committed to providing services to the community in a professional and respectful manner. Through teamwork, safety consciousness, hard work and by adhering to our core values (respect, duty and integrity), we will rise to any challenge that faces us.
