Training firefighters Since 2002

New Mexico is at high risk for wildfires. In fact, more than 70 percent of the state’s population abide in areas that are considered elevated risk for wildfire development. Due to the climate and terrain in New Mexico, wildfires can spread quickly, and the Sierra Blanca Wildland Fire Academy was created to help ensure that the firefighters who battle these fires are well trained and highly qualified. SBWFA knows that as firefighting professionals, it is important that we fully understand the theories and techniques of modern day wildland firefighting. The Academy’s classes have been designed to provide you with the information and knowledge to safely and effectively fight the fire threats we see today. Our philosophy is that the more professionally trained individuals we have, the better we can serve and protect our communities. The academy has been providing quality training to firefighters representing multiple states throughout the country for 21 years.
