Each coloring sheet is created from a real photograph. This photograph was taken by an amazing photographer named Kari Greer. She is contracted by the federal land management agencies in the United States of America to document wildland fire incidents throughout the country.
We hope you enjoyed coloring your sheet. How does it compare to the photo above? Does the photo make you think differently about the picture? Did you use different colors? We can’t wait to see everyone’s finished coloring, so be sure to share below or on social media (with your parent’s permission, of course)!
Typically, engine crews range in size from two to ten firefighters. They work with specialized wildland fire engines that carry special equipment to spray water and foam. Engine crews also perform a variety of other wildland fire tasks. For example, they respond to reports of new wildfires and serve as initial attack forces. They assist with prescribed fires and other fuels management projects. They patrol forests and grasslands and connect with campers and other visitors to educate them about fire prevention.* Here is an video that talks about a common tactic wildland fire engines in the United States of America use.
