By taking training opportunities that can translate to real world skills, you can make a difference.

In June 2023, Clifford Parver, aged 91, was stranded in the Lochsa River after his car ran off the road. Using his personal rafting equipment, Forest Service Firefighter JT Sohr was able to rescue Parver before emergency crews arrived.

Sohr, a 21-year-veteran of the U.S. Forest Service had recently completed a course in swift-water rescue training to build a skill set for just such situations.

Raise a glass with us to honor JT Sohr and all the other brave Forest Service firefighters who save lives and protect our national forests and grasslands.
