Cache Demobilization Specialist
The use of Cache Demobilization Specialists (CDSP) is strongly encouraged on all incidents in the Great Basin with more than 500 personnel (from ICS-209 at full mobilization). The tour of duty normally lasts two to five days.
Resource orders are initiated for a CDSP either by the incident or the unit. The CDSP reports to the Logistics Section Chief (LSC) or Unit Fire Management Officer (FMO). The CDSP assists in the return of supplies, and provides advice in the handling of sensitive items and hazardous materials. With the help of a CDSP, supply items get placed in an available status quickly. The Great Basin Cache maintains a list of qualified CDSPs within the Great Basin area.
