Request for Wildfire Operations Personnel

There is an immediate need for middle management positions in the operations section including division group supervisors and heavy equipment bosses. This is due to the fire activity and fire fighting resource needs in the Great Basin area and other parts of the county. Wildfire conditions are expected to remain high or increase through the remainder of the summer according to the National Association of State Foresters.

The Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control has been asked to communicate the request to make those employees with critically needed qualifications available for national dispatch.  As a reminder, ROSS is the system of use for this situation.  Available resources should already have an approved CRFF, already be in IQS, and already be in ROSS.  The resources should then status themselves accordingly.

If you have any questions, please contact Vaughn Jones, Deputy Chief of Wildland Fire Operations, Division of Fire Prevention and Control at:
