2012 was the biggest year for the WCCC, we had the most jobs and most consistent crews to date. With the increase in capacity, we were also able to increase our staff support in order to manage all of the crews. 2012 was  the year used to lay the ground work for our Veteran’s Program. The recruiting was in full force which will allow for a number of vets to be served in an employment-service situation in wild land firefighting and environmental work. Along with those accomplishments, we have also acquired several working relationships with Western Colorado State University and maintained the relationship with the BLM.
