From the Document: "The 'Incident Response Pocket Guide' (IRPG) establishes standards for wildland fire incident response. The guide provides critical information on operational engagement, risk management, all hazard response, and aviation management. It provides a collection of best practices that have evolved over time within the wildland fire service. The IRPG does not provide absolute solutions to the unlimited number of situations that will occur. Some fireline decisions may be relatively simple; many are not. These decisions often require individual judgment and creativity -- skills developed through extensive training, dedicated practice, and experience."
