Happy Holidays!
Posted: Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Dear Inbound friends and family,

I want to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season.  We have been busy with administrative issues like deciding when to conduct our pre-season training events.  We have posted a preliminary calendar of training events, beginning with the first refresher training on March 24 in Eugene. 

If you are a supervisor, please plan on attending the first training and pack test events.  As usual, we will be taking time to consider areas where we can perform better, and everyone's input and buy in is critical to get it right!  Please RSVP with me at 503-473-4851.

Yesterday I attended the NWSA Region 6 Crew Chapter meeting in Salem.  Travis Medema and Nancy Hirsch from the Oregon Department of Forestry were there to discuss the new IFCA which they will be administering beginning with the solicitation in September 2012.

More administrative items continue to dominate the agenda for now.  In the pre-season everyone needs to make sure their CPR is current, or plan on attending a class to get it current.  We don't have the CPR classes scheduled yet, but typically around May or June we will.  We will have several all hands training events which will coincide with the last day of new fire fighter trainings.  These events are a great place for those new to Inbound to get to know the rest of the Inbound family, so I highly encourage attendance by all personnel geographically available.  As ususal I will provide food and nourishment and personal protective equipment.

We also need to make sure we have current employment documents on every employee, a written wage agreement, driver applications (as necessary), a 2012 I9, and other administrative type items completed before any employment can occur.  Please help me in this regard by showing up early and often and looking at your file.  We will have at least two employee orientations and that is another opportunity to make sure we have everything we need on file.

For those of you who were part of the Inbound family last year (2011 fire season), I will be sending out W2 tax forms to your address of record.  If you would like to update your information, please call me or email me the correction and I will mail out your W2 accordingly.  Returned W2 forms will be kept at the office in Oakridge for three years.

It is too early to tell what 2012 will look like, but the work is already beginning.  Jerry and I look forward to seeing you all soon and hearing from you to RSVP for training events.  We wish you a safe and happy holiday season with your loved ones.

With love,
