The Cortez Fire Protection District in Colorado is like most departments, all about training. In this webisode, you will see a young woman currently working as a volunteer firefighter as she attends a training class and late afternoon gets some time on the nozzle at a controlled burn that went out of control, pretty usual in Cortez. Both the Chief and the Assistant Chief have been working on grants to get not only new gear, but a new Station. This show features some training and the testing of a new portable pump from Waterax as they test drafting techniques on a lake just outside of town.

We also join E9 and Lieutenant Partly as she and her crew respond to an outside fire, then a call for a shooting where the shooters picked up after themselves. This is "Women on the Watch."
