 Emergency Firefighters





The local Emergency Firefighter program is a cooperative effort between the BIA and the Blackfeet Tribe to set a standardized operation procedures, guidelines and policy for management and administration of BIA sponsored EFF crews. The policies that affect the Blackfeet EFF program are established in The Native American Crew Operating Plan. This plan is maintained by the Northern Rockies Coordinating Group (NRCG), Native American Crew (NAC) committee, an advisory committee organized to recommend emergency firefighter crew management policy to fire protection agencies.< xml="true" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" prefix="o" namespace="">


The Blackfeet Tribes most important strength is our numbers of trained qualified, and experienced wildland firefighting force. We currently have a resource base of eight hundred (800) firefighters that have been fighting fire for twenty to thirty years.


Our resource has been trained in all aspects of incident command, safety awareness, fire suppression skills, leadership development, and job skill development.
