All resources will be given a field exercise.All field exercises will be reviewed for operational proficiency. The drills can be done in the field on “mock” fires or they can be done in the station.The same items will be reviewed regardless of the location of the drill. These drill formats are for reference only and not part of the written package that is submitted to the local unit at the completion of the review.These drills give the review team members and the local units an opportunity to know in advance what the standards are and what the team will be looking for and give a standardized set of skills testing for agency resources nationwide.
Proposed revisions to the checklists can be sent to Marlene Eno-Hendren, FAD, BLM Fire Operations (email@example.com). Comments should be typed into the “remarks” section of the drill proposed for change. These proposed changes can be sent electronically to the above address for consideration. Proposed changes need to reflect a quantifiable item that directly applies to fire preparedness. The proposed revisions should include the exact verbiage that is being proposed. Drills are reviewed for compliance with agency policy and standards each January. Proposed changes will need to be submitted by the end of January for consideration that year.
