Following the 2000 Fire Season, CCi began forming a wildland fire team to provide hand crew support and assistance on wildland fires within Colorado. CCi operates the State Wildland Inmate Fire Team (SWIFT) crews, housed at various correctional facilities in Colorado. Currently, the base locations are at the Four Mile Correctional Center in Canon City, the Rifle Correctional Center in Rifle and the Buena Vista Correctional Center in Buena Vista, Colorado.

CCi makes SWIFT crews available to Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) and other agencies to assist in fighting fires within Colorado by dispatch through normal dispatch centers. CSFS has routinely provided a crew liaison when crews have been dispatched to wildland fires.

The crews are self-sufficient and come with supervisors, basic tools and equipment, and transportation. To ensure that the crews function well, the personnel train together and are maintained as crews throughout the year. They are available year-round for assistance with non-fire, woods-related programs and projects.
