If you are out on the fireline, you should be paid for time monitoring radio and maintaining LCES. Do NOT ! And I repeat.. DO NOT add the break at the end becaust that would be falsifying times which IS a Fireable offense and you are not meeting 2/1 work rest. What i have done is simply find out who is ordering the 30 minute break and simply write this in the comments: LCES NOT IN PLACE FOR 30 MINUTES DUE TO MANDATORY MEAL BREAK ORDERED BY DIV X,Y, Z or OPERATIONS OR TIME UNIT.
they will want this off the CTR ( which is legal documentation that goes in the DOC Box for the fire) So fast you will be astonished how fast their tune will change.
trust me, i have done this before and was asked on several occasions to remove the comment and just claim the meal break. Remember, you have to write in the comments COMPENSIBLE MEAL BREAK OF 30 minutes. That is the language the time unit understands as it is in the IIBMH. Interagency Incident Business Management Hand Book.
So do us all a favor and grow a set and lets all collectively put this injustice to our already underpaid firefighters TO BED !
