Outland Fire Crews

Type 2 Firefighters are also referred to as “sustained attack” crews. Sustained attack crews are deployed to the fire line immediately after MNR Fire Rangers (Type 1 Fire Fighters) have carried out initial attack suppression methods. Type 2 crews work alongside Fire Ranger crews until a fire is declared under control. Once Fire Ranger crews leave, sustained attack crews will walk the fire putting out hot spots that could lead to future fire spread.
