    Possibly the Team Safety. Or maybe PIO if those type are still around

    Possibly "Iceweb" but that would most likely include all injuries.

    It also started as a CalFire incident, so maybe them

    Still cuttin ??

    Welp, I guess fire season isn't over for you guys just yet. We just winterized our engines. More rain is coming. I have mixed feelings this time of year every time -- "Dang, no more fire and no more crew and no more OT" is just about overruled by "let me sleep in on Saturday already and oh man is life easier when I don't have to worry about the care and feeding of a crew and also stuff stops breaking down as soon as we stop using it". I am also always ready to start fire season after a few months of rain because man is it fun to run a crew towards the end of the season when everybody's figured the basics out and are comfortable working together and are jazzed to kill a fire as soon as they hear about it. Morale breaks as soon as the first person cuts out to go back to school. The high water mark is always about September 10. That's a seasonal crew at its best.

    2 years ago we had a fire in the same area in the middle of january that burned for over two months, 4-5 storms, and 1500 acres. Fire fighters could'nt access it due to snow until late march.

    January... That's wonky. The only fires I'd expect to be running into at that point would be people who can't keep it in their houses' furnaces or stoves.

    Unless you're from SoCal then fires in January are all to common.

    Fire season is still going in the central and southern Sierra. On the 28th-29th we had a lot of rain but also had some lightning.

    Hidden fire north of balch park.

    Meadow fire near the Trail of 1,000 Giants in the Johnsondale area. Wasn't doing much until this afternoon.

    Both being managed for resource benefits. The jacobson and slate fires are in the same areas.

    There's a lot of nice timber in the Johnsondale area.

    Interesting article. Now, it mentioned that fires in the SE usually don't get very large, which got me thinking (and if this is the wrong spot for this, i apologize-I don't want to be "that guy"). This would be because of the differing fuel types between the SE and the Western US, correct? Also, the amount of fires in the WUI is probably greater in the SE as opposed to fires from natural causes, such as lightning? As an aside, I'm working towards my FFT2, but I don't remember this being covered in the classes that I've taken thus far. Thanks in advance guys.
