2011 Fire Season Readiness
Posted: Friday, April 15, 2011

Dear friends and family,


This past weekend the Inbound Equipment Working Team met to discuss the 2011 water handling agreement, company culture, and assignments for the 2011 fire season.  The meeting was well attended and we have engine bosses assigned for all ten of our engines.  E-01 (Rick Lucrezi), E-02 (Larry Akerly). E-03 (Bill Brady), E-04 (Adham Rowley), E-05 (Marie Hoover), E-06 (Roland Cababag), E-07 (Jack Crittenden), E-08 (Jerry Crafton), E-09 (Steve Miller), and E-10 (David Figueroa).


The engine bosses will be commissioning their engines and will be prepared for inspection by May 27th, the next big all hands training event.


As a reminder, the next RT130 will be in Eugene on May 7th.  Please RSVP with me at 503-473-4851.  The first S130/S190 will be beginning on May 23 through May 27th in Oakridge.  We will also be having S131/S133 Squad Boss Training on May 23 and May 24th as well as S212 beginning May 25th.  This big week of training will culminate with the all hands event on May 27th in Oakridge.  We will have hamburgers and hot dogs and preform inspections on all equipment in addition to making sure all of our paperwork is in order for the season.


Beginning June 13 we will have a similar event in Cave Junction.  We will begin the S130/S190 on June 13th through June 17th.  We will have the S131/S133 Squad Boss traning on June 13th and June 14th, followed by the S212 beginning June 15th.  This big week of training will also culminate with an all hands event on June 17th.


There is still a lot to do in the next eight weeks.  All of our drivers need to ensure that their paperwork and MSPA applications are complete and submitted.  We will complete our training and assessment of personnel and make preliminary assignments to engines and crews. 


If you have any questions about preparedness, training opportunities, or ways you can help Inbound to be ready for the upcoming season, please contact me via email or cell phone.  Thank you everyone for the time and energy you spend helping to keep yourself ready and helping to make Inbound successful.


Thanks to you we continue to be one of the best wildland contractors,
