Hello, my name is Douglas Boyer, or Doug for short. I work for the New Jersey Forest Fire Service in Division A, which is the area of Northern New Jersey. Along with being a wildland firefighter, I am also the committee chair person for our section’s Firewise community connection. Along with being the main agency that suppresses wildland fires, we also take the lead in educating the public about how to prevent structure loss from a wildland-urban interface fire. Lastly, we assist the New Jersey parks department in various trail and park projects throughout the year.
