Contain and control slop over keeping fire east of Starr Valley Rd. Assess and implement structure protection as needed.
Continue to secure remainder of fire perimeter. Cold trail any areas that burned in heavier fuels. Assess needs to spike or return
to Wells ICP at end of shift, coordinate with OSC by 1400.




8. Special Instructions (See enclosed resource considerations as well)
Ensure all resources are self-sufficient for 24 hours (food, water, supplies, and personal gear).

Be alert for erratic fire behavior. Ensure all safety zones are established and escape routes well-marked. No frontal assaults,
secure the line.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR ALL DIVISIONS

RESOURCE CONSIDERATIONS:

 1) Identify any fences that were cut for access or to release
    cows. Inform DIVS.

 2) Avoid application of retardant or foam within 300 feet of all
    stream channels and waterways.

 3) If streams are dammed to facilitate pump operations, remove
    dams when done with pump operations.

 4) All pumps must have 3/32” screens.

 5) Use fuel containment barriers on all pumps.

 6) Sanitize engines with bleach concentration.

 7) Monitor water levels in ponds. If close to dewatering, stop
    dipping or pumping.

Weather
Fire Weather Watch - winds 10-15 mph from the SW, gusting 20 mph by noon at Eye Level from
the SW. Mostly Sunny, Max Temps: 89-97 valleys and 80-90 on the ridges. Min RH: 8-13% in the
valleys and 12-20% on the slopes. Haines: 5. LAL: 1

Fuel Prescriptions/Assumptions: (information from Tom Reid, local Elko BLM FBAN – Fuels Spec).
The fire continues to spread 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%, resistance to control is high.
Juniper is (Fuel Model #6) – the juniper fuels are very dry and have exhibited rapid spread rates with
short-range spotting. Aspen is (Fuel Model # 8) – these stands will slow fire spread but they have enough
dead material to carry fire through these stands. 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: 70-90%.
Probability of Ignition: is 100% on all spotting into the grass fuels.

Specific Fire Behavior:

Hepworth Fire – fire behavior verified Wednesday with rapid spread rates, near 80 ch/hr mid-afternoon
and spread of approx. 3 miles. Winds will not be as strong on Thursday, but strong enough for extreme
fire behavior and rapid spread.
 Div L: This will be the most active division on Hepworth, with terrain driven spread upslope, further
influenced by the SW winds gusting to 30 mph in the afternoon. Expect short-range spotting near the
ridgetops and rapid downhill fire spread pushed by the strong winds. All fuels are being consumed.

Stephens Fire: - stress 100% mopup on all fuels, as witnessed with the fire run on Wednesday of almost
3 miles in 2-3 hours. Expect similar conditions for Thursday with fire spreading to the NE with the SW
winds as well as localized runs upslope with the terrain and diurnal heating.
Div D: This division will be most susceptible to the terrain & diurnal fire spread as well as cross slope
spread pushed by the SW winds. Expect rapid rates of spread again today.

Safety:
   1. Dust Devils – These dust devils can start new spot fires which can spread at over 80 ch/hr.
   2. Safety Zone Recommendations: 500’ x 500’ due to the strong, gusty winds and dry fuels.
   3. LCES – Post Lookouts (recommendation from Fire Behavior Advisory).
   4. Aviation operations will be affected by the strong, gusty winds and smoke from other fires.

                                   Don’t become complacent. Keep your
                                   guard up at all times, as we never know
                                   when conditions may change. Review the
                                   common denominators that occur on
                                   tragedy fires

            ROAD TRAFFIC- Drive slow, watch for kids in town.
**********SLOW DOWN**********
ALL FIRE FIGHTERS HAVE FIVE COMUNICATION RESPONSIBILITIES
     Brief others as needed
     Debrief your actions
     Communicate hazards to others
     Acknowledge messages
     Ask if you don’t know

Post Lookouts and Identify escape routes and safety zones. Make them known.

Take care of your health. Take plenty of water and be sure your people are
drinking it.

Fire Behavior- Please review your RESPONSE POCKET GUIDE AND
BURNING INDEX CARDS.

   Camp Personnel—If lifting and loading supplies use proper lifting techniques to avoid
   back injuries.
   Watch for Rattlesnakes.
   Thank you for the safe work to date, let’s keep it up.

Air Operations- Maintain good communications with other ground units and aircraft in your area.
Ground crews must maintain a safe distance during bucket drops. This is not only for your
personal safety, but it will allow the pilot an opportunity to do his job in a safe and effective
manner.

      Transportation- When traveling to and from incidents- lights on, use seatbelts, and never
      exceed posted speed limits.
Thank you for the safe work to date, let’s keep it up.

SAFETY OFFICER: JEFF BEDKE
                                         Today's discussion is from the
                                         Weather / Fire Behavior Category.




Scenarios:
                                                                              Six Minutes Home Page
Scenario 1

                                 EXTREME FIRE BEHAVIOR
Extreme fire behavior has always been present in cases of shelter deployment. It is critical for
firefighters to maintain situational awareness of live and dead fuel moisture conditions as well as
predicted and current weather conditions. As fire behavior changes, it is critical to act decisively to
the changing situation.


   Discuss the following indicators of extreme fire behavior:

        •   Relative humidity less than 15%
        •   1-hour fuel moisture less than 5%
        •   Trees crowning inside the fireline
        •   Smoldering fires that exist in the early part of the day are beginning to burn very
            actively as the day progresses.
        •   Approaching thunderheads with dark clouds beneath
        •   Presence of dust devils indicating an unstable atmosphere
        •   Increased spotting
        •   Sudden calm
        •   High clouds moving fast in direction different from surface wind
        •   Predicted Haines Index of 5 and 6 in those areas where this level is a good indicator of
            atmospheric instability
