Brubaker il Last month 45 children, ages 4 through 13, learned what it means to be a first-responder wildland firefighter and how firefighters perform their jobs at the Summer Program Involving Creative Exploration Camp. SPICE Camp took place on July 21 at Lassen National Forest's Almanor Ranger District in Chester. Forest Service staff shared information on fire safety and protecting the forest from the dangers of fire. They also discussed the importance of the 911 emergency call number and how to stop, drop and roll. Participants were also introduced to Smokey Bear and learned his number one rule: children should never play with matches or lighters. The goals of the program were not only to share fire safety messages, but also to plant the seeds of public service and make youngsters aware of first-responder job opportunities. At the end of the program, one young girl was overheard saying, "I can't wait to grow up to be a firefighter!" Lassen National Forest lies at the "Crossroads of California," where the granite of the Sierra Nevada, the lava of the Cascades and the Modoc Plateau, and the sagebrush of the G eat Basin meet. The forest is managed for recreational access, as well as for timber and firewood for homes, forage for livestock, water, minerals and other natural resources. The mission of the U.S. Forest Service, part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is to sustain the health, diversity and productivity of the nation's forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations.
