The results showed that the fire crew members of Brasília Botanical Garden had a high number of trained workers for forest fires (92,8%), all members obtained first aid courses and there was a high number of health problems (33,3%). The fire crew members of IBGE Ecological Reserve showed a high percentage of satisfaction with the activity (84,6%) and forest fire training (92,3%), all members obtained first aid courses and there was a low accident rate (7,7%). At Água Limpa Farm there were few fire crew members with training (39,1%), high percentage of accidents (17,4%) and low percentage of health problems (8,7%).
