CASPER, Wyo. — Three firefighters from the Natrona County Fire District are heading to Texas for prepositioning duties. Firefighters Chris Weaver and James Harbuz and Fire Capt. Heath Serres will staff the brush truck for this assignment.
Prepositioning involves predicting which regions might need extra assistance during potential fire threats. By bringing in resources from other areas, this strategy can prevent small fires from escalating and provide additional manpower when required, according to a Facebook post by the Natrona County Fire District.
