Weather
Red Flag Warning - due mainly to strong winds of 14-19 mph in the afternoon, gusting from 25-30
mph at Eye Level from the South. Mostly Sunny, Max Temp: 94-99, Min RH: 9-12%.
Haines: 6. LAL: 1

Fuel Prescriptions/Assumptions: (information from Tom Reid, local Elko BLM FBAN – Fuels Spec).
The fire is spreading mainly in the Grass/Sagebrush (Fuel Model #2). The sagebrush is drier than
normal and is being totally consumed and must be mopped up 100%. Juniper is (Fuel Model #6) – the
juniper fuels are very dry also and have rapid spread rates with short-range spotting. Aspen is (Fuel
Model # 8) – these stands will slow fire spread. Fine Dead Fuel Moistures 1 - 2%. 1000-hr FM – 4%.

ERC values as of July 1st are at or above historical maximums, with live fuel moistures between 70-90%.
Probability of Ignition for any spot fires is at 100%.

Specific Fire Behavior: All Divisions

Any fire that becomes established will exhibit the following behavior: (calculations from Tom Reid)
FM 2 (Grass/Sagebrush) Wind Speed (Eye level)            Rate of Spread            Flame Lengths
                              6 mph                         50 ch/hr                      9 ft
                              8 mph                         83 ch/hr                      12 ft
                              10 mph                        125 ch/hr                     14 ft
                              12 mph                        173 ch/hr                     16 ft

FM 6 (Juniper)               6 mph                        38 ch/hr                      10 ft
                             8 mph                        54 ch/hr                      12 ft
                             10 mph                       73 ch/hr                      14 ft
                             12 mph                       92 mph                        16 ft

(80 ch/hr = 1 mph. Note: You can not outrun these fires.

Safety:

   1. If thunderstorms develop over or near your fire, expect erratic fire behavior from outflow
      winds.
   2. Dust Devils – with a Haines of 6, conditions for an unstable airmass exists for the entire shift.
      These dust devils can start new spot fires which can spread at over 100 ch/hr.
   3. Safety Zone Recommendations: 500’ x 500’ due to the strong, gusty winds and dry fuels.
   4. LCES – Post Lookouts (recommendation from Fire Behavior Advisory).

Major Hazards and Risks:
Fire Behavior- Do not be deceived, know your escape routes and safety zones at all times. Are they adequate?
Situational Awareness- Pay attention to the little things that can quickly add up.
Dehydration- Continue to drink the fluids, 1 quart per hour of work minimum.
Air Operations- Multiple aircraft, Bucket drops, Air to Ground communications.
Transportation- Drive defensively with lights on. Slow down and wear your seatbelts.

                                  USE THE IRPG TO HELP MITIGATE OTHER RISKS


                  Fire Order of the Day – Keep informed on fire weather conditions and forecasts.
 Post lookouts and monitor weather conditions throughout the day. Lookouts advise of any possible changes. It can be
somewhat unpredictable and subject to rapid change. High winds can change fire behavior rapidly. Make sure you
are passing along weather alerts to people on the line that may not have a radio. Continually reassess your escape
routes and safety zones throughout the day.

                         HEAT DISORDERS

Heat becomes a problem when humidity, air temperature, and radiant heat combine with hard
work to raise body temperature beyond safe limits. Sweat is your main defense. Everyone on the
fireline must understand the importance of drinking water often.
  High heat stress can produce three forms of heat related illness;
      •  Heat cramps
      •  Heat exhaustion
      •  Heat stroke


  The mildest is heat cramps. Heat cramps can progress to heat exhaustion and eventually heat
  stroke.
  Heat cramps are involuntary muscle contractions, typically in the large muscle groups, caused
  by failure to replace fluids or electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium.
      •    Cramps can be relieved with stretching and by replacing fluids and electrolytes.
      •    Heat cramps can be prevented by maintaining an adequate intake of water, electrolyte
           replacement drinks and by eating fresh fruits and vegetables.


  Heat exhaustion is characterized by:
     •   Weakness
     •   Extreme fatigue
     •   Nausea
     •   Headaches
     •   Wet, clammy skin


  Heat exhaustion results when the body produces more heat that it can dissipate. Inadequate
  fluid intake is a major contributing factor. Treat heat exhaustion by resting in a cool
  environment, by removing clothing so that one's sweat can evaporate, and by replacing fluids
  and electrolytes.
  Heat stroke is caused by failure of the body’s heat controls. Sweating stops and the body
  temperature rises.
  Although classic teaching describes a heat stroke patient as "hot and dry", recent studies have
  shown that over 50% of heat stroke patients are sweating heavily. Typically, on the fireline we
  do not have medical thermometers. Therefore, the hallmark of heat stroke is altered mental
  status. You should suspect heat stroke if a firefighter is hot, fatigued, and shows some altered
  mental status, such as inability to remember the day or the current situation. They may ask,
  "Where am I?"
  Heat stroke is characterized by:
     •    Hot, often dry skin
     •    Body temperature above 105.8 degrees Fahrenheit
     •    Mental confusion
     •    Loss of consciousness, convulsions, or even coma


  Heat stroke is a medical emergency. Brain damage and death may result if treatment is
  delayed. Begin rapid cooling with ice or cold water, fanning the victim to promote evaporation.
  For rapid cooling, partially submerge the victim’s body in cool water. Treat for shock if
  necessary. Provide oxygen if it is available. Whereas heat cramps and heat exhaustion may be
  treated locally, heat stroke patients should be medivaced off the line ASAP, by air if possible, as
  their condition may worsen suddenly.
  You can prevent the serious consequences of heat disorders by improving your level of fitness
  and becoming acclimated to the heat. Maintaining a high level of aerobic fitness is one of the
  best ways to protect against heat stress. The fit worker has a well-developed circulatory system
  and increased blood volume. Both are important to regulate body temperature. Fit workers start
  to sweat sooner, so they work with a lower heart rate and body temperature. They adjust to the
  heat twice as fast as the unfit worker.
