ABILENE, Texas — An estimated 250 firefighters from across the state will meet at Brownwood's Camp Bowie, a National Guard training center, Feb. 17-20 for the Central Texas Wildfire Academy, a combination of classroom and handson instruction in wildland firefighting.
The participants will learn a standardized firefighting curriculum developed by the Texas Forest Service, said Jamey Creek, the officer in charge of the camp and a volunteer firefighter in Buffalo Gap.
