  • Checksheets for deployment

    Does anyone have a list or checksheet for things that would be useful on a deployment? Or things that you will need to bring on your own. I know I have one, but I can't seem to find it. Thanks in advance.

    I've got several....

    Hey Skeeter,
    I've got several checksheets for when we are sent on Strike Teams. Is this what you are wanting? If so, send my a P.M. and I will email you a copy of the best one I have.

      Are you talking about personal gear you need like clothing and such or what you need on the engine (paperwork etc)?

        Yeah I'm talking about personal gear that you should have when you get deployed.

          The red mobilization guide has a list of things you need personally and things for the engine.

            Here is a list I have for my employees, this assumes a 14 day assignment, if your agency won't send you out that long you might want to adjust it, I know many structure departments swap crews after 3-5 days.

            6 pairs of socks (minimum)
            6 sets of cotton underwear (minimum)
            1 set of non fire clothing (shirt & pants appropriate for camp or R&R)
            Swim trunks / bathing suit
            Tennis shoes
            Shower shoes / flip flops
            Sleeping bag
            Warm jacket
            Sweatshirt / pants
            Knit cap
            Rain gear
            Gloves
            Towels(s) & wash cloth
            Toothbrush & toothpaste
            Soap, shampoo
            Comb or brush
            Shaving kit
            Deodorant

            Insect repellant
            Sun screen
            Toilet paper
            Small flashlight
            Pocket knife
            Plastic bags (in case of rain, for dirty clothes etc)
            Feminine hygiene products (for females)
            Over the counter meds (aspirin, cold / allergy medicine, vitamins, band aids, chap-stick etc)
            Special personal needs (extra prescription glasses, prescribed medications etc)
            Cash for personal needs (ATM’s are not always available), $40 is a reasonable amount
            Entertainment, (book, magazine, hackysack etc, keep it appropriate for the workplace)
            Emergency supply of your personal vice (Instant coffee, tobacco products, gum etc)

                Thanks for posting this list. This will be my first season, I got my red card in March and I am stoked to get out. I need to call up the company and get a more specific list from themthough(because I know the company provides Nomex, but I'm not sure what else I need to get for myself). Thanks for this list. Mike

                  Rules of Engagement for South Georgia wildfires

                  If you go to www.gmag.com?? I believe is the website, or it may be .org. Anyways under Georgia Mutual Aid Group you can find the ROE's that detail out what you are required to have and other useful information for deployment and demobilization. The most important form is the 214 since this is the one that you get paid from :-)....

                    The ICS 214 form is no longer being used as a time sheet. GA Forestry has begun to use the crew time report as of last week.

                    Some other things I would add include; dryer sheets (for clothes and bug repellent) and laundry detergent. If you have the opportunity you may want to wash your personables.

                      Dryer sheets work as bug repellent? Did I read that correctly? Good to know. At the base camp, do people usually set up their own tents or do people tend to share tents? My buddy sent me a video of a fire from Hawaii( just a mile or so from his house which is in the middle of a field of tall dry grass!). The fire looked like it started in the grass and had moved up into the woods on the hill. No one had arrived to fight it yet when the video was taken, but apparently they got it out just fine. When I was watching it all I could think of was getting out there and fighting it. I'm stoked for this summer.
