Fall is in the air
Posted: Friday, September 23, 2016

Dear loved ones,

Fall is in the air.  The nights are getting colder and the Chantrelles are busting through.  Our fire calls have dwindled off and we are at readiness condition GREEN.  This has been a strange year, starting late and ending early.  Our hand crews got a few calls and made the most of their opportunities.  James Diaz and Ira Wyatt were promoted to squad boss and Robert Percy and Wes got to work on their SRB quals.  Our engines only worked on Rx burns.

We could still get a fire call, and we do have ONE crew available and up to six engines we could provide immediately.  

I want to thank you for your committment to wildland firefighting.  This type of year is challenging.  Some of our outstanding rookies never got a chance to go out despite staying ready all season.  I hope you will give us a chance and come out for the refresher training and pack tests in the spring.

I have updated the training calendar.  Our first RT130 and pack test will be March 25th, 2017 in Oakridge.  Squad boss class will be offered March 26th for those with at least one year of fireline experience (15 days minimum).

The first New Firefighter Class will be April 23rd to APril 28th, starting with the pack test at 0700 on Sunday April 23rd.  Please complete the FEMA NIMS Class IS-700 and IS-100 and forward to me at if you would like to rsvp for the class.

Please maintain your readiness, and especially your physical fitness routine during this off season.

Blessings, Dillon
