Rogue Basin TREX is organized as a federal incident, using the Incident Command System; participants serve in qualified and trainee firefighting positions on a prescribed fire team. Participants will assist with burn preparation, scouting, igniting, holding, mop-up and patrol on designated burns and gain experience with fireline equipment, engine operations, safety and leadership skills.
Experience with pre- and post-fire monitoring will be available, as well as training in Rogue Basin dry forest fire ecology and other topics offered in small groups outside or through online presentations. Opportunities to shadow qualified staff may be offered.
There will be a required orientation video to view. A recommended short field orientation for team introductions is being planned for March 4, 2023 at Siskiyou Mountains Ranger District office. A full field day will be provided for participants who are new to prescribed burning following the introductions. After the orientation and field day, participants will conduct burns on an on-call basis during the spring.
