Back Home

The crew is been demobed from the Goldledge Fire and is back home on days off. The fire containment lines withstood the 2 days of high winds. The crew's assignment was mopping up Division Y and on the 2nd day to rehab a dozer line. The last acreage size was 3,900 acres and 70% contained. Not the best assignment for us but we where able to take care of some necessary training. Capt. Steve Vigil was able to get his Strike Team Leader (Crews) signed off. We where married up with our sister crew the Palomar Hotshots as a Strike Team. Having this qualification signed off will now take the crew out of trainee status or Type 2 IA and make us a Type 1 crew based on the National Interagency Hotshot Crew Operation Guide for crew overhead qualification requirements. Squad Leader Tim Kraling got his Crew Boss Task Book signed off as well as Apprentice David Rodriguez who got his Fire Fighter I (Squad Leader) signed off.
