Hi fellow fire brothers and sisters,

I'm a firefighter from Fremont County Fire District in Wyoming, only 2 hours away from Yellowstone.

Wyoming is the most remote State having only a little more than half a million in population.

Our nearest bye specialized hospitals and large airports are 5-6 hrs away. 

Talking about rural, right?

We have to deal with heavy beetle kill dense pine forest, but also with long stretches of sagebrush and cheat grass.

My question for all is.....what do we personally as individuals expect from this rural symposium?
