Is fire season really over? We spend a lot of time and energy preparing for fire season. But how do we prepare for reentry back home? Transitioning from a busy, mission-focused environment to less structured down time can be difficult. Getting back to life at home can be stressful in its own way. Your family and friends may not be mentally prepared for your return from the field either. The initial reunion can be fun and exciting, but disruption sometimes follows.
It's going to take time to readjust. Learn some tips to prepare yourself, your family, and your friends for a smooth reentry.
No one is invulnerable to stress, fatigue, and trauma - there is no shame in admitting it!
Our mission is to provide national leadership to enable interoperable wildland fire operations among federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners. NWCG operations standards are interagency by design; they are developed with the intent of universal adoption by the member agencies. However, the decision to adopt and utilize them is made independently by the individual member agencies and communicated through their respective directives systems.
