Just wondering why the five IHCs on the ANF are “unavailable training” per OSCC?
Crew1, crew4 the only ones on ANF. TC, Little T, andDalton are on the BDF Lakeincident.
This is what happens when non fire personal
are in charge they schedule a mandatory POSH
class during fire season
wouldn’t surprise me if it was posh training. I have been pulled off a fire out of state early to attend POSH training
Yep, seeing a lot of crews out on there first roll of
The season and all there overhead was gone to posh
This is an easy one to figure out! POSH. The training is necssary! I question the timeing of such training at this time of year!
My past experience while working for the “Green Machine”, was after attending POSH that conversations got raunchier. Not sure if it was simply the irritation of being forced to go through it or to spite the individule/agency for creating the Monster. All federal employees are over the age of 18, and there for are adults. Employees were hired by the feds to do a job, to remove them from an emergency assignment and make them attend is ridiculous. If this training is so crucial, why were they available in the first place? Sorry to most of you, sure I’m preaching to the choir.
Try fighting fires that might happen thank to the old north and south zone head sheds.
Mandatory POSH training had a very negative effect on the Lake incident. Many orders placed the first OP period went UTF because “Agency” units had mandatory training.
My agency would have immediately cancelled all mandatory training and engaged in the fire. I was very surprised to find out about this and the casual way it was handled. USFS needs to make firefighting and fire incident management a priority above everything else as these classes can always be rescheduled. Crazy times…
