Important Numbers
Central Nevada Interagency Dispatch Center (CNIDC) 775-623-1555, 775-623-3444 (Fire Line)
Winnemucca Field Office     775-623-1500 Front Desk
McDermitt Station           775-532-8711
Lovelock Station            775-273-3638

        All fire resources must employ LCES and must wear PPE to limit exposure of personnel.
Emphasize these points during daily briefings. Line supervisors must ensure these practices are
        As with any fire program, safety is our top priority. Be certain to adhere strictly to the
Ten Standard Fire Orders and monitor and mitigate for the Eighteen Watch-out Situations.
Always have your escape routes and safety zones identified and updated. Nevada has an
exceptionally dry climate and an abundance of flashy fuels. This combination frequently
produces extreme fire behavior. Situational awareness is the key in this fast-paced fire
        Safety awareness, proper use and handling of equipment are necessary at all times. No
activity or emergency is so critical that safety rules should be overlooked. You will be expected
to know, apply, and practice safety throughout your employment. Employees will be familiar
with the job hazard analysis form and proper safety procedures.

Fire Weather
        Crews must continually monitor local weather and atmospheric conditions and provide
for contingencies should rapid changes adversely affect fire behavior. Crews must ensure daily
weather forecasts are used and that on-going weather monitoring is done. Lookouts must also be
cognizant of local weather patterns.
         All fire personnel must use risk management principals and anticipate that changing
weather will be a high risk factor in their planning efforts. Identify trigger points (such as wind
shift, proximity of dust devils to operations, and their frequency of occurrence) and reassess
current actions

The weather on our district is usually quite hot and dry. We do not receive much precipitation (8
inches per year on average), and the clouds that do show up often bring dry lightning. Daytime
temperatures range from 85 to 105 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer. Relative humidity is
often below 10%. We cover the weather report during morning briefings to keep personnel
updated on the conditions.

Fire Behavior
        With the extreme fire behavior experienced in the Great Basin, the tactic of direct attack
must include one foot, one wheel, or one track in the black. This is essential for all fire resources
to ensure a sound escape route to their safety zone(s). Communicate these practices through the
use of safety alerts and bulletins for any resources assigned to work in the Great Basin area.

        Northern Nevada has a history of extreme and advanced fire behavior that is only
increasing with the cheatgrass invasion. Fine dead fuel moistures are consistently near 5%
during the summer months, and live fuel moistures are typically below 100% by July. Please be
aware that the dry fuels, high temperatures, and low relative humidity produce fire behavior that
many are not accustomed to. It is important to recognize that our range fires can travel at great
speeds, especially under windy conditions.

Cultural and Historical Concerns
         A cultural resource is anything resulting form past human activities. This includes tools,
art, trails, buildings, sites and districts that are important to our knowledge of human
development. The Winnemucca BLM Cultural resource program is set up to discover and
preserve these sites and artifacts for scientific, cultural educational and religious use. It is our
responsibility as Federal and State employees to help in the identification and protection of the
artifacts and sites. Many of these areas have been intentionally vandalized or looted; therefore
we should try to leave these areas as we find them. It is against federal law to willfully take any
artifact from federally managed lands. If you have any questions as to what is cultural, historical
or a sensitive area ask or request a Resource Advisor.

Political and Local Concerns
        In addition to the cultural and historical values placed on the land in the area many people
use this land to make a living. What may seem to be just sage, grass, juniper or barren land to is
someone’s rangeland, mining operation, recreation area, hunting area or back yard. The land
here is just as important to the local community as the tribal, refuge, timber, or park lands and
urban interface that you protect on your home units. So think before you speak and ask before
you do something that may impact someone else. Be professional and courteous to all parties at
all times. Remember, you are representing yourself, your unit, and the Winnemucca BLM fire
program to the public.

Reporting to Work
        Between June and September, work shifts normally begin at 0900. Should this change,
you will be notified. Please be sure to read the message board in the crew room to double-check
for any changes.

Daily Schedule

Standard shift: 0900-1300, 1400-1800 (Shift times will vary.)
   0900-0915           Roll Call, engine inspections, gear on engine.
   0915-1030           Physical training (Run, Hike, Weights) Cleanup, Shower, Fire ready.
   1030-1100           Daily briefing (Situation reports, Weather, Safety), Daily Assignments &
                       Project Work
   1100-1300           Finish Engine checks, daily assignments, training, or project work
   1300-1400           Lunch remain in contact with supervisor and dispatch
   1400-1730           Daily assignments, training, or project work
   1730-1800           Put away tools, close out paperwork, secure engine, end of shift briefing

Response and Get Away Standards
   Local Response, Working hours: 3 minutes
   Local Response, Non-working hours: 15 - 30 minutes
   Off District Assignment, Working hours: 30 minutes
   Off District Assignment, Non-working hours: 1 - 2 hours

Equipment Maintenance
        Preventative maintenance will be performed each morning prior to or immediately after
physical training. Any deficiencies in equipment must be brought to the supervisor’s attention
and initiate action to repair or correct problems as soon as possible. All engines and equipment
will be brought to a minimum Normal Unit Stocking (NUS) before available for
Time Keeping
       Engine Module Leaders will turn in time daily to the local time unit for posting to as OF-
288. Times will be signed by the Incident Commander or FOS. Work shifts that exceed 16
hours and/or consecutive days that do not meet the 2:1 work/rest ratio should be the exception,
and no work shift should exceed 24 hours. Justification of shifts over 16 hours will require
documentation from the incident commander and/or duty officer. In rare situations where this
does occur (for example, initial attack), incident personnel will resume 2:1 work/rest ratio as
quickly as possible. Falsification of time will result in demobilization and/or disciplinary action.

Project Work
        All employees will be required complete assigned project work for BLM fire and other
BLM programs. Project work will come secondary to all pre-suppression activities and fire
projects. Project work will be expected to be completed professionally and an expedient manner.

Fire Cache, Fire Replacement and Supply Number Procedures
All fire replacement items from the fire cache must be signed out to the crew supervisor. If
items were used or damaged on an incident an incident number must be provided. Any damaged
items on an incident must have a property loss and damage report completed and turned in to the
warehouse. If a non cache item is damaged a property loss and damage report must be
completed before a supply number will be issued.
If any supplies need to be returned to the fire cache ensure that you physically return the supplies
to the fire cache manager.
Supply Numbers must be requested on a General Message Form (ICS-213) to the Incident
Commander or the Fire Duty Officer (or delegate) for approval. Information that will be needed
Central Nevada Dispatch Interagency Center will then issue supply numbers through dispatch or
the warehouse. A supply resource order will then be relayed to the requesting party.

Overview and Description of the Winnemucca Field Office
    1) Topography
       a) Elevation: Elevations of major landforms in this geographic range from about 2000 to
           1400 feet above seas level
       b) Landforms: major landforms found in these areas include the full spectrum of broad
           valleys to mesas, and mountains, varying in elevations and steepness.
    2) Weather
         Because this area experiences a continental climatic influence, it is subject to extended
         duration of hot, dry, windy weather with frequent thunderstorm activity throughout the
         summer. Low humidity and high temperatures serve to promote thunderstorm
         development. With summer thunderstorms comes high lightning activity.
             a. Precipitation: Precipitation varies in amounts from about 4 to 25+ inches per
                 year. In the great basin area, the majority of precipitation is received in winter in
                 the form of snow and rain, depending on elevation. March is quite often the
                 heaviest precipitation month.
             b. Relative Humidity: relative humidity can drop to minimums in the single digits
                 with nighttime recovery ranging to 25-30 %. Above this level, spread and
                 intensity are markedly reduced, although strong winds can sometimes overpower
                 the dampening effects of humidity. An example is the fact that sagebrush stands
                 can be consumed with significantly intense headfires at relative humidity levels in
                 excess of 30% in the presence of winds in excess of 30 mph.
             c. Temperature: During July and August, maximum temperatures can reach 90-
                 110 degrees with minimums 30-50 degrees lower. Minimum temperatures
                 dropping below freezing and even into the teens and snow can occur at higher
                 elevations during any month of the year.
             d. Winds: Upper air flow generally originates from the west to southwest and
                 moves to the east to northeast. Surface winds vary greatly, are affected by local
                 terrain, and afternoon surface winds of 10-20 mph are common. Winds
                 associated with the passage of thunderstorms can reach higher levels for short
                 durations and often significant effects on fires. Dust devils are common and dry
                 cold fronts frequently affect active fires.

           e. Storm Tracks: Storms track into the Great Basin from the southwest and affect
              southern and western Nevada. From the northwest into southern and central
              Idaho, and from the south and west into Utah. The Winnemucca Field Office is
              predominantly affected by storms tracking from the west and southwest into
              Nevada and traveling to the northeast. The extreme southern portion of the state
              will usually receive an influx of monsoonal moisture from Arizona and New
              Mexico during late July and August.
           f. Storm Frequency: Thunderstorm frequency increases as the summer progresses.
              Moisture associated with thunderstorms varies but is greatest at higher elevations.
              In the Great Basin or western portion of this geographic area, thunderstorms will
              persist into August and early September.
           g. Daylengths: Generally, daytime hours are fairly long but traveling from south to
              north in the area will increase the day length about one and one-half hours. This
              does impact suppression operations in that the peak burning activity and occurs at
              different lock times and can affect operational period crew changes etc.


1) Strategy and Tactics
      Since the Great Basin area contains a full extent of resource values at risk, fuel types and
      terrain features appropriate strategies utilized during suppression activities will vary
      depending upon the specific set of conditions for a particular incident.
   a) Direct Attack: Generally speaking, on most fires within the Great Basin and lower
      elevation fire communities (Pinyon-Juniper and northern desert shrub-sagebrush); direct
      attack with hand tools and engines can be effective. Direct attack is also effective for
      higher elevation fuel types depending on the fire intensity.

       Normally, the flame length and spread rates will allow close in work with equipment.
       Water and retardant can effectively stop the fire spread. If rekindling occurs, it will
       happen over a short period of time due to light fuels. Most failures come from running
       out of water prior to completing control lines. Aerial retardant is effective indirect attack
       for establishing line and also for tying engine lines together. Foam units are becoming
       more common and are very effective in these light fuels.
               The direct attack method is limited to the following:
                       1. Ability to work close in to the fire (fire intensity), size of perimeter,
                           and number of engines available.
                       2. Availability of water.
                       3. Terrain (maneuverability

   b) Indirect Attack: In lighter fuels, indirect attack and burning out is a good approach in
      areas where minimal burned area is not a significant concern. Indirect attack also
      becomes an option when direct attack is limited as mentioned earlier.
             When using an indirect attack, several factors must be considered:
                    Natural barriers
                    Burned acreage
                    Timing-can burn out be completed prior to fire spread reaching
                    predetermined line?
                    Availability of resource for firing and holding
                     Methods available to prepare burnout line
               Methods of preparing burnout line that have proven effective include:
                     Wet line with immediate burnout
                     Engine applied retardant or foam line
                     Air tanker applied retardant line

Time is critical and ground and aerial based ignition devices can be highly effective.
Ground firing by hand is much slower but also effective.

    c) Parallel attack: this type of attack is used on medium to large sized fires at higher
       elevations. Intensity of these fires frequently precludes direct attack so establishment of
       sound anchor points and well timed burnouts makes this method successful.

2) Tactics
   Again, the full spectrum of tactics is available and will be called into play in these
   geographic areas. As resource values to be protected increase, tactics will implement a more
   aggressive and productive capability of suppression resources.
   Common tactical considerations include:
          Night operations-can be highly effective
          Use of natural barriers/fire line location
          Chemical retardant use and limitations on use
          Burnout, aerial and ground ignition
          Minimum Impact Suppression Tactics (MIST)-should be standard procedure on all
          wildland fires but will be mandatory in all wilderness and Wilderness Study Areas.
          Minimum impact rehabilitation techniques
          Mop-up standards
          Helispot location and rehabilitation
          Safety concerns/snag problem areas/ evacuation needs

3) Fire Management Resources
   Winnemucca BLM Fire manages wildland suppression operations for BLM Winnemucca
   District, USFS Santa Rosa RD, and BIA lands. Winnemucca BLM Fire also manages
   hazardous fuel reduction, Emergency Stabilization and Rehabilitation (ESR), prevention and
   mitigation, rural fire assistance and fire planning for Winnemucca BLM district and BIA
   lands within Winnemucca BLM district.

       Winnemucca BLM has the following resources;

Heavy equipment: It is very common in The Winnemucca District to utilize heavy
equipment including but not limited to Dozers, Graders, and Tractor Plows to aid in the
suppression of Wildland fires. The Winnemucca district has an agency Dozer, D-2995,
that is used as an initial Attack resource. The Winnemucca District utilizes heavy
equipment through Co-operators such as the Wild Fire Support Group, Rural Fire
Departments, City of Winnemucca, and Private Residents as needed. Dozers are very
effective in aiding with suppression of wildfires burning in Sage Brush and Grass.
Hand Crews: Hand Crews are the most common resource utilized on extended attack
and team action wildland fires. Nevada Division of Forestry provides 12-24 person
inmate hand crews for fire suppression.
Aircraft: Helicopters are effective for reconnaissance, personnel movement, initial
attack support, supply transport, and water or chemical delivery. Single Engine and
Heavy airtanker use in the Great Basin is heavy. There are numerous airtanker bases
throughout this area with the capability for operation of portable refill bases to support
large fire suppression activities as needed.

                            Standard Initial Attack
                              Dispatch Procedures
When an incident is reported, the IA dispatcher will dispatch resources by one of two methods.

1. During normal staffing hours, Announce: “Reported (vegetation fire, smoke check, etc.) in
the area of (give geographic location of reported incident).

Set off pager tones for appropriate stations/units.

Announce: “(Read all aircraft, engines, WSG, crews, and personnel to respond) respond to (give
geographic location of reported incident), Recreation Atlas (give page and grid location). The
incident will be on _____ Zone frequencies. Recommend Command _ _________ and Tac
_______. Repeating for (Read all aircraft, engines, WSG, and personnel to respond) respond to
(give geographic location of reported incident), Recreation Atlas (give page and grid location).
The incident will be on _____ Zone frequencies. Recommend Command _ _________ and Tac
_______. This is incident (give 4-digit WildCAD incident number). Units dispatched stand-by
one minute for confirmation of response.”

Wait one minute…Announce: “This is Central Nevada confirming response to incident (give 4-
digit WildCAD incident number).” Say each units name* and give them a few seconds to
confirm response**. Attempt to make contact with any units that did not confirm response.
“Central Nevada clear at _____”( give time).

* i.e. Engine 2946? Water Tender 2921? 2910?
**DO NOT confirm with aircraft, the aviation dispatcher will do that. DO NOT confirm WSG
units, they’ll be notified by phone.

2. After normal staffing hours, the IA desk will dispatch resources by telephone or pager. It is
important to remain in communication with dispatch, Fire Operation Supervisor and/or Duty

  All responding units must confirm their response with CNIDC
           via radio once they are actually responding.

                       Rural Fire Departments
                       Mutual Aid Agreement
       Winnemucca BLM has a mutual aid agreement with all Humboldt and Pershing County
Rural Fire Departments with respect to fire operations. Please familiarize yourself with this
agreement so that you are aware of our operating plans with the Rural Fire Departments.

Fire Reporting

        Fires that occur on or threaten state or private lands within the jurisdiction of the
Humboldt and Pershing County Rural Fire Department will be reported to the Humboldt County
Sheriff’s Office. Fires occurring on or threatening BLM lands within the jurisdiction of the
Humboldt and Pershing County Rural Fire Department will be reported immediately to the
Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and relayed to the Central Nevada Interagency Dispatch

Fire Suppression Action

        Within the boundaries of the mutual attack area, either agency may take initial attack
action on the other agency’s lands upon request of the agency having jurisdiction of the lands
involved (hereafter “the responsible agency”). If such initial action is taken, officials of the
responsible agency will be immediately notified of the action, and the initial attack force shall be
relieved as soon as practical. Rural Fire Department resources shall be released from BLM fires
as soon as possible, so as to reestablish structural coverage in the Rural Fire Districts.

       The BLM is not equipped or trained to do interior attack for structure suppression.
Therefore, any such suppression action will be the responsibility of the Humboldt and Pershing
County Rural Fire Departments. BLM will furnish assistance if requested through Humboldt
County Sheriff’s Office. This may consist of water transport and supply for the Rural Fire

        If the agencies respond to a fire where the location is undetermined or the boundaries
unknown, the crew leader who arrives on scene first will act as Incident Commander until the
exact land status is known. Once this is determined, an Incident Commander from the
appropriate agency will be agreed upon. If needed, either agency may render fire suppression
assistance to the other agency.

PURPOSE: To familiarize firefighters with the utilization of Wildfire Support Group (WSG)
members during wildfire suppression efforts on the Winnemucca District.

BACKGROUND: After the 1999 fire season in Winnemucca, an effort was organized by
several local ranchers and the BLM to organize, train, and equips the ranchers with the certified
ability to report, respond to and work on wildland fires within the Winnemucca District. There
are eleven participating groups or individuals in the WSG organization who you may expect to
see on some wildfires. They have all had yearly refresher training, and Red Cards. Some will be
operating heavy equipment and not be engaged in “arduous” suppression efforts on the ground.

AUTHORITY: The Wildfire Support Group is considered a “Cooperating Entity”, authorized
by an annual Cooperative Agreement and an Annual Operating Plan, signed by the BLM and
each participating member of WSG.

Wildfire Support Group provides       1. Quick Detection of Incidents
                                      2. Best Access to Incidents
                                      3. Availability of Heavy Equipment

Wildfire Support Group members are concentrated mainly in the Quinn River Valley around
McDermitt and Orovada, with other members located around Denio, the Jackson Mountains,
Leonard Creek, and the Imlay areas. There are 20 members total, with several also being
members of their local volunteer fire departments.

When WSG members respond, it will be at the approval of the BLM Duty Officer and at the
request of CNIDC. They will be qualified as Firefighter 2s and FFT1 trainees, or will be
equipment operators on graders or dozers. Some of the “older” members will serve as lookouts
and road guides. They will all have PPE, radios, initial attack size-up card and information, and
be in contact with CNIDC during fire activity.

WSG members serve three main purposes-to serve as lookouts and early fire reporting entities; to
provide local access knowledge, and to provide local heavy equipment that can respond rapidly
to fires.

There are two coordinators-one (Mike Whalen) for the BLM and one for the group itself (Jan
Schade). If any issues or problems arise, please contact these two individuals for assistance.
For further information, please contact Mike Whalen at 775-623-1552 or cell 775-304-1009.


1) Note the fire location and direction of spread at the time of arrival to pass on to the Cause
   Determination Specialist (CDS).
2) Protect the General Point-of-Origin (GPO) and mark it with flagging.
3) Note any vehicles or people leaving the fire scene. Get descriptions and/or vehicle license
   plate numbers.
4) Document weather observations for the CDS.


1) Check the GPO for obvious signs of a lightning strike.
   a) If the fire is lightning caused, report to Dispatch, who will cancel or not order the CDS.
   b) If there is no obvious lightning strike, order a CDS from Dispatch.
2) Ensure that the GPO is protected until the CDS arrives.
3) Ask any witnesses with information on cause of fire to remain in a safe area until the CDS
   arrives. If they can’t remain, request their contact information for the CDS.


1) Ensure that you have all the necessary equipment and report to the fire in a separate four-
   wheel drive vehicle when possible. Ask Dispatch to pull up a lightning map for your report.
2) Report to the IC and determine if it is safe to start investigation. Check your radio and
   telephone communications with the IC before beginning your investigation.
3) Determine if the firefighters obtained any witness information. If so, gather that information.
   If witnesses are on scene, gather information directly from them, including contact
   information, so that the Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) can conduct follow-up interview.
4) Determine the GPO.
   a) Get fire spread information from the Initial Attack Crew.
   b) Start time log (i.e., fire reported, IA arrival, CDS arrival).
   c) Document fire weather observations.
   d) Read fire indicators.
   e) Determine land status of the GPO.
5) Search for evidence of a lightning strike. If none is found, start investigation and instruct
   Dispatch to notify LEO.
6) Place barrier tape around the GPO and guard the area.
7) Determine Specific Point-of-Origin (SPO) within GPO.
   a) Look for obvious ignition device and any physical evidence. If found, leave in place,
       protect, and flag.
   b) Look for tire tracks and footprints. If found, protect and flag.
   c) Complete photo log. Photograph GPO, SPO, and all evidence.

     d) Determine GPS coordinates for SPO.
     e) Sketch SPO area. Label north arrow, exposure, evidence locations, and distance
        measurements from a fixed location.
     f) Document negative corpus (i.e., what didn’t start the fire).

   g) Contact Dispatch to determine the status of LEO.
        If LEO has been dispatched, remain on scene and assist LEO in evidence collection.
        If LEO is unavailable, collect all evidence, complete evidence labels and log, cast tire
          tracks and footprints, and complete search of SPO. On hands and knees, using garden
          tools, a magnet, and a magnifying glass, collect and photograph any additional
          evidence found during SPO search.
8) Maintain custody of evidence, photographs, and documentation until you turn it over to LE
   Case Officer.
9) Generate report documenting your crime scene investigation (including negative corpus) for
   the Case Officer. Keep a copy of your notes until all legal matters are settled. Fill out a DI-
   105 with the Case Officer when you turn your notes over to her/him. As CDS, the Case
   Officer may request that you return to the crime scene for further investigation.

            M.I.S.T. GUIDELINES
A. Safety
Safety is of utmost importance.
Constantly review and apply the “Watch Out Situation” and “Fire Orders.”
Be particularly cautious with:
        Unburned fuel between you and the fire.
        Burning snags allowed to burn.
        Burning or partially burned live and dead trees.
Be constantly aware of surroundings; expect fire behavior, and possible fire perimeter 1 or 2 days hence.

B. Fire Line Phase
Select procedures, tools, equipment that least impact the environment.
Seriously consider using water as a fireline tactic. Fireline constructed with nozzle pressure, wetlining.
    In light fuels, consider:
            Cold trail line.
            Allowing fire to burn to natural barrier.
            Burning out and use of “gunny” sack or swatter.
            Constantly rechecking cold trailed fireline.
            If constructed fireline is necessary, using minimum width and depth to check fire spread.
    In medium/heavy fuels, consider:
            Using natural barriers and cold trailing.
            Cooling with dirt and water, and coldtrailing.
            If constructed fireline is necessary, using minimum width and depth o check fire spread.
            Minimizing bucking to establish fireline. Preferably move or roll downed material out of the
            intended constructed fireline area. If moving or rolling out is not possible, or the downed
            bole is already on fire, build line around and let material be consumed.
    Aerial fuels—brush, trees, snags:
            Adjacent to fireline: Limb only enough to prevent additional fire spread.
            Inside fireline: Remove or limb only those that if ignited would have potential to spread fire
            outside the fireline.
            Brush or small trees that are necessary to cut during fireline construction will be cut flush
            with thee ground.
    Trees, burned trees, and snags:
            Minimize cutting of trees, burned trees and snags.
            Live trees will not be cut, unless determined they will cause fire spread across the fireline or
            endanger workers. If tree cutting occurs, cut the stumps flush with the ground.
            Scrape around tree bases near fireline if hot and likely to cause fire spread.
            Identify hazardous trees with an observer, flagging, and/or glow sticks.
    When using indirect attack:
            Do not fall snags on the intended unburned side of the constructed fireline, unless they are
            safety hazard to crews.
            On the unintended burn-out side of the line, fall only those snags that would reach the fireline
            should they burn and fall over.
            Consider alternative means to falling, i.e., fireline explosives, bucket drops.

           Review items listed above (aerial fuels, brush, trees, and snags).

C. Mop-up Phase
Consider using “hot-spot” detection devices along perimeter (aerial or hand-held).
   Light fuels:
          Cold trail areas adjacent to unburned fuels.
          Do minimal spading; restrict spading to hot areas near fireline.
          Use extensive cold trailing to detect hot areas.
   Medium and heavy fuels:
          Cold trail charred logs near fireline; do minimal scraping or tool scarring.
          Minimize bucking of logs to check for hot spots or extinguish the fire.
          Return logs to original position after checking or ground is cool.
          Refrain from making boneyards; burned/partially burned fuels that were moved should be
          arranged in natural position as much as possible.
          Consider allowing larger logs near the fireline to burnout instead of bucking into manageable
          lengths. Use lever, etc., to move large logs.
   Aerial fuels- brush, small trees, and limbs.
          Remove or limb only those fuels that if ignited, have potential to spread outside the fireline.
   Burned trees and snags.
          See Section B.

                   Interim Wilderness Fire Response Plan
This plan affects the following wilderness study areas (WSAs)…..

     1.   East Fork High Rock Canyon              6. Pahute Peak
     2.   High Rock Canyon                        7. North Black Rock Range
     3.   Little High Rock Canyon                 8. Black Rock Desert
     4.   High Rock Lake                          9. North Jackson Mountains
     5.   Calico Mountains                       10. South Jackson Mountains

     1. Resource advisor will be included in the WILDCAD system for all wilderness fire suppression
     2. Air resources, including helicopters, air tankers, and smokejumpers, will be included in the
         WILDCAD system for all wilderness fire suppression actions.
     3. Use existing clearings in the vegetation for helispots.
     4. Helibases should be located outside the wilderness area.
     5. Hand crews and power tools may be used in suppression actions.
     6. Retardant is not approved, though water may be used in aircraft.
     7. Use minimum impact suppression tactics (MIST) at all times.
     8. The use of any mechanized earth-moving equipment within wilderness boundaries requires prior
         approval from the field manager and will only be used during emergency situations when life or
         property is threatened.
     9. Heavy fire vehicles (i.e., engines) will be allowed in the wilderness area using predetermined,
         existing roads only. See map on next page.
     10. The use of roads and natural barriers will be utilized for fire breaks whenever possible.
     11. Fire camps should be located outside the wilderness area whenever possible.
     12. Staging areas should be located outside the wilderness area whenever possible.
     13. Leave No Trace guidance will be followed in the wilderness area. All evidence of human
         activity must be removed to the maximum extent possible.
     14. Seeding must be done with native species and planted in such a way as to appear natural.


     The objective of this outline is to provide Winnemucca area Incidents information concerning
     medical facilities and medivac support. It also provides information on obtaining assistance and
     local protocols.

    NOTE: For ALL helicopter evacuations contact and work directly with the Central Nevada
    Interagency Dispatch Center (CNIDC). The Winnemucca Field Office has in place a pre-arranged
    system of mobilizing and coordinating contact with the hospital / ambulance service (or Life Flight -
    - as situation applies), comp/claims personnel, flight-following, and airspace control at the airport
    and helibases. Outside calls to any of the above confuse the system and may slow the overall

     This is not an attempt to replace the duties of your medical unit but to increase the efficiency and
     response times of the local support units.
         A. If an Incident is able to handle the initial medivac with its assigned resources; they should
             notify CNIDC with the necessary information and flight follow with CNIDC to destination of

        B. If an Incident is not able to handle the initial medivac they should contact CNIDC and order
           the medivac from dispatch. Proper information such as exact location, ground contact, type
           of injury, hazards, etc., will greatly expedite the medivac.

        C. All medivacs, including Life-Flight are conducted at helipad on the North parking lot of the
           Humboldt County General Hospital. Depending on the severity of the accident or services
           needed, patient will be transferred to an appropriate hospital.

        D. If the medivac is to a location other than Winnemucca, contact and coordinate through

                                                 Medical Emergency
    This is a life threatening injury or illness involving one or more major body systems (ie. respiratory, circulatory,
    neurological). This patient needs Advanced Life Support (ALS). Early on, consider air transportation to a trauma or
    burn center. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!
    Air Transportation: Advanced Life Support (ALS)
    Other criteria for air medical transport are lengthy extrication of the patient from the site, or ground transportation is
    restricted by terrain or weather conditions.
Rotor Wing

I   Rotor wing air ambulances have a 150-mile response area based on 1 fuel cycle.
    If injury location is outside of response area helicopter will have to refuel enroute.
