This is an encore presentation of a program that originally aired on May 29, 2019.  "Be a student of fire." That's just part of the advice that Colorado's first all-female wildland fire crew received at a training camp in late May, 2019. Last summer, the women worked on conservation projects and help fight forest fires in the area around Grand Junction.  KVNF spoke to several of the crew members, their instructors, and a couple of longtime female firefighters, and updated the program with a June 2020 interview.
