Russian Smokejumpers Visit Missoula Base

by Chris Sorensen |

Russian Project Director Aleksey Gribkov says he is impressed with how well the services such as the National Weather Service, The NRCC, and the Smoke Jumpers work together in coordinating fire activity

"The smoke jumper teams in Russia have been and are stagnating. What I would like to do is get a handle on what the developments are, and see if I can inspire some of the agencies to adopt some of them at home."
