Modoc IHC - Standing down, Type 1 Hand-Crew under investigation

Modoc National Forest News: The Modoc National Forest will not have a Type 1 Hand-Crew this fire season. 

We will not be filling vacancies on the Modoc Inter-agency Hot Shot crew (IHC) this spring, although we do plan on retaining the module.

The Modoc National Forest Hot Shot Crew is undergoing investigation by Human Resources (HR) and Civil Rights (CR).  Based on these on-going investigations, we will not be filling our current vacancies. This includes both permanent and temporary positions. In addition, we will not allow detail apprentices to join this crew for the 2011 fire season.

After completion of the HR/CR investigations, we will begin the process of recertifying this team as a Type 1 hand crew. 
We do not anticipate resolution of these issues until late summer.

Remaining members of the crew will be available for Single Resource assignments or detail assignments subject to approval of the Forest Supervisor.

We will keep you informed of our progress to resolve this matter.

Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
