Well, we just got thrown for a loop here on the SNF. I dont know all of the details but the Forest announced a vacant position for a Forest Safety Officer Detail…. then nobody heard anything about it until the spring Module Leaders meeting where it was announced that a GS 4 or 5 got the job as the Forest Safety Officer. This person will probably never attain the qualifications to be any type of Safety Officer in the fire capacity or IQCS qualification. What kind of Stupid move was that ? It totally hurts the Forest and killed the morale of a LOT of worthy Enging Captains who could have got on an Incident Management Team and excelled in the position. Time to just hang up the boots , hose and helmet and GTF out !!!
