UNIT: Elko Field Office                                     SIGNED: Tom Reid FBAN

PRESCRIPTIONS/ASSUMPTIONS:
Fire is burning in grass/sagebrush (Fuel Model 2), and Aspen litter (Fuel Model 8). The fire area has received
below average winter precipitation and experienced an abnormally drier and warmer spring. Sagebrush live
fuel moisture readings for the area have been estimated in 90-100 % range. Fine fuel moistures are currently
2% for the fire area. 1000 hour fuels moistures are 4%. All fuels are available for consumption. Afternoon
20 foot winds are predicted to be out of the southwest 15-25 miles per hour. High temperatures are
forecasted in the low to mid 90’s. Minimum relative humidity should drop to the single digits.
WEATHER SUMMARY See attached forecast
                                                  FIRE BEHAVIOR
GENERAL:
Fire is burning in flashy fuels and will respond to the wind. Main fire spread on both fires will be to the
northeast. Expect accelerated rates of spread when slope and wind are in alignment. Aspen litter is receptive
to fire and will burn readily.

Rock Creek RAWS
BI-97 Extreme
ERC -102 Extreme
SPECIFIC:

Hepworth Fire
Division G & H: Winds are favorable for direct attack. Hot spots possible along the perimeter.

Division L & Z: Any unsecured hot spots will want to run in the afternoon. Fire will want to spread up
Antelope Mtn. to the NNE.


Stevens Fire
Division A & F: Hot spots possible in drainages and aspen litter.

Division D: Fire will want to spread up the West and East Forks of Boulder Creek. Expect running ground fire
in the aspen stands in the early afternoon. As the afternoon progresses anticipate torching with short crown
runs.


H-D Fire: Minimal fire activity, interior hot spots will continue to burn in the interior..

AIR OPERATIONS:
Smoke from adjacent fires may impact morning air operations. Smoke should lift as inversion breaks.

                                                       SAFETY
Be aware of changing weather conditions. In flashy fuels, any changes in wind speed and/or direction can
have a significant influence to fire behavior.

Air Operations – maintain good communications with other ground units and aircraft in your area. Ground
crews must maintain a safe distance during bucket drops for not only personal safety, but to allow the pilot
an opportunity to do his job in a safe and effective manner.
Transportation - When traveling - lights on, use seatbelts, & never exceed posted speed limits. Watch out
for livestock and wildlife. Maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you for good visibility on
dusty roads. Drive defensively and to the road conditions!

                                        Fire Order of the Day
         Maintain prompt communication with your forces, your supervisor, and adjoining forces

                                                            Behavior on Tragedy Fires
                                                       •    Most incidents happen on the smaller
                                                            fires or on isolated portions of larger
                                                            fires.
                                                       •    Most fires are innocent in appearance
                                                            before the “flare-ups” or “blow-ups”. In
                                                            some cases, tragedies occur in the mop-
                                                            up stage.
                                                       •    Flare-ups generally occur in deceptively
                                                            light fuels.
                                                       •    Fires run uphill surprisingly fast in
                                                            chimneys, gullies, chutes and on steep
                                                            slopes.
                                                       •    Some suppression tools, such as
                                                            helicopters or air tankers, can adversely
                                                            affect fire behavior. The blasts of air
                                                            from low flying helicopters and air
                                                            tankers have been known to cause flare-

                               HYDRATION

Maintaining body fluids is essential for sweating. You must hydrate before, during, and after
work.


Before work you should take extra fluids to prepare for the heat. Drink 1 or 2 cups of water,
juice, or a sport drink before work. Avoid excess caffeine; it hastens fluid loss in the urine.


While working drink at least 1 quart of fluid per hour. Drink as much as you can during the
lunch break. Water is your greatest need during work in the heat.


Providing a portion of fluid replacement with a carbohydrate/electrolyte sport beverage will
help you retain fluids and maintain energy and electrolyte levels.


After work it is important to continue drinking to replace fluid losses. Thirst always
underestimates fluid needs, so you should drink more than you think you need.


Rehydration is enhanced when fluids contain sodium and potassium, or when foods with
these electrolytes are consumed along with the fluid.


Unacclimatized workers lose more salt in the heat so they need to pay particular attention to
salt replacement. Don’t overdo salt intake; too much salt impairs temperature regulation.
Excessive salt can cause stomach distress, fatigue, and other problems.


Make potassium-rich foods like bananas and citrus fruits a regular part of your diet, and
drink lots of lemonade, orange juice, or tomato juice.


Limit the amount of caffeine drinks such as coffee and colas because caffeine increases fluid
loss. Avoid alcoholic drinks. They also cause dehydration.


You can assess your hydration by observing the volume, color, and concentration of your
urine. Low volumes of dark, concentrated urine, or painful urination indicate a serious need
for rehydration. Other signs of dehydration include a rapid heart rate, weakness, excessive
fatigue, and dizziness.


Rapid loss of several pounds of body weight is a certain sign of dehydration. Rehydrate
before returning to work; continuing to work in a dehydrated state can lead to serious
consequences, including heat stroke, muscle breakdown, and kidney failure.

Dozer Lines and Use

Pull all berms back into the dozer line. Spread cat piles back into the dozer line, as long as they don’t
contain burning materials. If cat pile was pushed into the black, spread it out in the black. If it is not
possible to push the cat pile into the dozer line just spread out the material.

Only put in water bars on steep slopes greater than 50%. If water bars are put in they need to drain into
unburned fuels. If burned on both sides of the dozer line, DO NOT put in water bars, unless absolutely
necessary; just pull berms back into the line.

Drainage Crossing:
Remove as much material with the dozer as possible to clean out the drainages. Spread material back into
dozer line. If necessary, use a hand crew to finish cleaning material out of the drainage. Let Resource
Advisor Justin Rodgers know if any deep drainages were filled in, that need a trackhoe to remove
material. Resource Advisor will need the location of the drainage marked on map; GPS coordinates are
also helpful.

Spread brush back into dozer lines, and unburned pinyon/Juniper logs and branches back into dozer lines.
Do not cut trees down to rehabilitate dozer lines. Be careful NOT to pull any burning materials across the
dozer lines.

When an existing road was torn up by a dozer to create control lines, remove large rocks and try to restore
road as best as possible.

Flag cut fences and broken gate posts. Notify Resource Advisor of location to mark on map so these sites
can be repaired.

When dozer lines go through a fence, check for buried barb wire in the dozer line.


Water Drafting or Pump Sites

1. Remove any dams or other material placed in streams at drafting sites.


Other Rehabilitation

1. Remove all suppression equipment (tools, backpack pumps…)

2. Remove all flagging & trash, including micro trash, such as gum wrappers, cigarette butts, etc., on the
   final sweep of area.
