Southern Nevada BLM Engines

 

BLM’s engines in Southern Nevada -- three Type 3 fire engines, one Type 4 fire engine, one interagency Type 6 fire engine -- are staffed with between three and five firefighters depending on the season, training needs and other factors. The engines are led by a Captain, Engine Operator and Lead Firefighter. Two additional firefighter positions per engine are seasonal.

Engines may be assigned out of area for up to 30 days at a time depending on fire conditions locally and throughout the nation. Firefighters will often live in primitive conditions in the field while assigned to incidents often camping for days at a time in remote locations. Firefighters will work up to 16 hours a day in hot and smoky conditions when on a fire assignment.
