WOODLAND PARK -

Hundreds of federal firefighters are positioned throughout Colorado ready for the next wildfire, but the U.S. Forest service has called in an additional crew to educate the public on fire prevention.

The Fire Prevention Education Team receives two-week assignments just like hand crews do.

April Phillips, leader of the team, said the Pike and San Isabel National Forests are working proactively to prevent the next big fire from happening.
