CA has its first Type One Fire for 2020… orders being placed I’m hearing. Anyone know which fire or info on this?
Fed or State team?
CA is up first in the national Type 1 Team rotation.
Am I missing something here? What’s burning in the State that a Type 1 team is needed?
Nothing, as far as I know.
Copy thanks everyone! Rumor mill I’m sure! Happy fathers day to everyone!
Well, like I said, CA is up on the national rotation. So, you never know.
CIIMT5 - Young (Type 1 Fed Team) has been mobilized. I don’t know if this mobilization is for the Quarter Fire or preposition.
The National Sit Report this morning shows the Bighorn Incident in Arizona ordering a type 1 team off the national rotation, no doubt it is CIIMT 5.
From OSCC News & Notes:
06/21/2020 1105 Quarter, Vegetation Fire, Tuolumne County, New
Italian Bar Rd. x Grant Ridge Rd., Twain Harte
Federal DPA, FRA, Stanislaus National Forest

- 78 degrees, 34% RH, wind SSW @ 4, Gusts to 8

- Fire in remote location with difficult access
- Evacuation warnings in place for the community of Cedar Ridge

The Quarter Fire had an order for a Type 1 Long Team in IROC that shows cancelled and a Type 1 Short Team that’s pending. But it looks like they released all the tankers on that fire so probably will be cancelled I assume?
