ABSTRACT

Engine Module's Experience and Lessons from Its First Fire Assignment This Season   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "'Many resources did not appear to be practicing social distancing. Other responders have COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] procedures, but they vary widely between agencies.' [...] Upon arrival on the incident we noticed a large organization working the fire that included: several law enforcement vehicles, several fire department command vehicles, several volunteer engines from the surrounding communities, an ambulance, and SNF [Santa Fe National Forest] Engine 461. An effort was made to keep our module isolated from the rest of this group, having only one person obtain a briefing and assignment from the Incident Commander. We did interact with SNF Engine 461 to see what intel they had prior to our arrival. Our assignment was to relieve SNF Engine 461 on the hose lay and continue to secure the fire while they took care of a spot fire above the main fire. We tied-in with the SNF Engine 461 folks and secured the fire's edge until released from the incident."
