Small team, big impact: CEMML joins wildland firefighting in Alaska

In June of 2019, lightning ignited a wildfire on the Kenai Peninsula south of Anchorage, Alaska, threatening homes and infrastructure. The Swan Lake fire would go on to burn nearly 170,000 acres of Alaskan wilderness. When the initial call for support went out, a small group of wildland firefighters from Colorado State University’s Center for Environmental Management of Military Lands joined the response. Based at nearby Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, the CEMML team was just getting its footing as the base’s new Wildland Support Module.
