Incident signage is usually reflective and bright to command attention.
We are also fond of flagging posts and trees to make something noticeable.


The abundance of poison oak in the Umpqua environment demands

Camp crews are a tremendous help keeping camp ducks in a row.
Shown here are bags of plastic bottles for recycling.


Firefighters pick up lunches and water before heading to
the fireline.

Thanks for the great java, Bob!


Although our fire camps usually manifest within a miraculous 24 hours, sometimes a yurt or trailer delivery is delayed. Shown here are members of the Communications Unit weathering sun and battling with the wind during the first day.


Our white van: GIZMO arrives with internet and miles of communication cables.


Much of firefighting safety is about situational awareness.

More images will be added to this album as they arrive.
