Fire Team 

The Tennessee State Parks Fire Team is made up of commissioned rangers from all over the state.  The team is divided into 3 regions west, middle, and east.  Rangers are required to participate in practice burns to keep training up, attend fire classes put on by the Tennessee Forestry Division, as well as pass a pack test to ensure good physical ability.  Rangers who join this team are taking on extra duties that are physically challenging as well as dangerous.
