The Gering Fire Department will again lead fire training exercises on public land in the Panhandle for the annual West Nebraska Engine Academy. This year, the training exercises will be at Cedar Canyon Wildlife Management Area in the Wildcat Hills on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 14-15.
Hunters should be aware that burning will be occurring at various locations on the property and should consider the event if they plan to pursue game there that weekend.
About 30 fire departments, along with state and federal agencies, are expected to be represented at the event.
More information about the event may be obtained by contacting the Gering Fire Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or 308-436-2441.
