Wildland Fire Safety Training Annual Refresher (WFSTAR)

The WFSTAR program is governed by the National Wildfire Coordinating Groups Training Division. The WFSTAR website is a collection of previous years, and new and updated videos. These videos and the accompanying instructor/student guide, are designed to be used in building a wildland fire refresher for your unit but can also easily be used as morning briefing, tailgate or other informal training. Videos are added every month. Topics are chosen based on immediate field relevancy.

Federal agencies each have their own policies on fireline safety refresher training. Below are each agency’s policy requirements:
