Beginning Monday, March 14, 2016, Anaheim Fire & Rescue will engage in wildland fire training to prepare for the approaching wildland fire season. This training will include the use of smoke canisters to assist firefighting personnel with locating the source of the fire. The smoke will be dispersed from cold smoke canisters that release white smoke. The smoke canisters pose no safety risk, but the smoke may be visible to residents in the surrounding area.

Four training sessions will be held on each training day and smoke will be dispersed at each session. The releases will occur at approximately 10:00 am, 11:30 am, 2:30 pm, and 4:00 pm. The smoke will be visible for less than one minute following each release. All of the training sessions will be held at the southern end of Weir Canyon Road and are scheduled on the following dates:

March 14th, March 17th, March 18th, March 22nd, April 12th, and May 26, 2016.

“Wildland fire training is an important aspect of our Emergency Operations Plan” said Anaheim Fire & Rescue Deputy Chief Pat Russell who oversees Fire Operations. “We want our residents to know we are prepared, but do not want to create concern when they see the smoke release.”
