Here’s MJ’s answer to someone yesterday on theysaid regarding 14 day assignments:

NWCG has been pretty clear about the 14 day assignments. The 14 days
start when you check into the incident. Travel DOES NOT count toward the 14
days, and the status-check in recorder asks you when your last day off was to
determine if you came in fresh, or from another fire. If you came directly from
a fire, that travel counts towards the 14.Travel home again does not count. So,
you could travel 2 days to a fire, then do 14 shifts there, then travel 2 days
back, for a total of 16 days gone from home, as an example.
