Welcome to the Battle Born Firefighters Association’s official Facebook fan page. We will use this page to post the most recent news, videos, and photos that showcase the mission and firefighting members of the Nevada Air National Guard, 152nd Airlift Wing and the Nevada Division of Forestry. For more information, please visit http://www.152aw.ang.af.mil/, http://www.forestry.nv.gov, or https://www.iaff3895.org.

While this is an open forum, it is not a “dumping ground” for photos. Our focus here is to share the stories of our Association in an engaging, professional manner. This means that imagery on the page must be cleared as if they were official agency photos or videos. If you have a great photo or video, please email it to us for review. Imagery posted without prior review may be deleted at any time.

This is also a family friendly one, so please keep your comments and wall posts clean. In addition to keeping it family friendly, we ask that you follow our posting guidelines here. If you don’t comply, your message will be removed:
-We do not allow graphic, obscene, explicit, or racial comments or submissions, nor do we allow comments that are abusive, hateful, or intended to defame anyone or any organization.

-We do not allow solicitations or advertisements. This includes promotion or endorsement of any financial, commercial, or non-governmental agency. Similarly, we do not allow attempts to defame or defraud any financial, commercial, or non-governmental agency.
-We do not allow comments that suggest or encourage illegal activity.
-You participate at your own risk, taking personal responsibility for your comments, your username and any information provided.

Finally, the appearance of external links on this site does not constitute official endorsement on behalf of the U.S. Air Force, Department of Defense, Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Nevada Division of Forestry, International Association of Firefighters, or the Professional Firefighters of Nevada.
