There will be two Type 6 Wildland Fire Engines on site in support of this operation and adequate staffing for each shift of burning, which includes qualified Engine Bosses. Each engine is equipped with the minimum “National Unit Standard” of specific quantities of hose, fitting and accessory requirements, able to meet specific hoselay requirements. We also plan on supplying an additional 3000 feet of on-site hose. It is likely that burning operations will be conducted in below freezing conditions and will require 3” of snow.
