fire whirl at Great Dismal Swamp NWR

Although wildfires are relatively rare in the Northeast compared to other areas of the country, they do occur on our National Wildlife Refuges and National Fish Hatcheries. Most of our fire employees are trained and qualified to respond to wildfires. They also may help with wildfires in other regions.
