Herb Love is a retired California Fire Division Chief who held ICS qualifications including Branch Director, Division Supervisor, and Safety Officer 1. He developed an on-the-ground version of a USFS staff ride at the Rattlesnake Fire site (Glenn Country CA, 1953) for CAL Fire and other Fire Department personnel who are involved in wildland and interface firefighting. In the staff ride, participants immerse themselves in the technology, terrain, weather of that fire, and the thought processes of those whose actions and reactions affected the fire's outcome.
