The Mississippi Forestry Commission (MFC) is deploying a bulldozer strike team and two division supervisors to Oklahoma to assist state and federal partners with wildfire suppression efforts. Eight MFC Wildland Firefighters traveled overnight to arrive in Shawnee, Oklahoma the morning of Friday, March 16, 2018.

“We are extremely proud of our employees who are taking part in these efforts to help our state and federal partners in Oklahoma.
