This is the initial “Pack Test” a wildland firefighter must pass in order to receive their “Red Card” and be “On The Line” or Wildfire.
There will be scaling options available. Either weight and/or distance. Just like in wildland fire, the pack test is determined by your ICS position. This is the test all of the Hot Shots 19 completed before they went to the line. Get ready for Hotshots 19.
