Today was our first full day of work in our sections.  There are three of us in planning, one in logistics, one in operations, one in the medical unit, one in safety, and one liaison.  At every opportunity we are taking notes and asking questions to improve the way we do business in our shop.  Wildfire teams are a unique group that have a tremendous amount of experience.  Fortunately for us they're able to pass this on to us so we can bring it back to the all-hazards world for application at a full spectrum of incidents.  

We had members of our team all over the fire today.  Several were on the fire line, others were at the heli-base, while others were working with those that push all the information, data, weather, mapping, plans, etc out to those that are hands on with the fire.  

Fire conditions today continued to improve.  We received several bouts of rain totally .06" which is a significant "wetting" rainfall for an area like this experiencing a wildfire.  The storms were very impressive coming off of the mountains...

Can you spot the lightning?   

Then it cleared up.....
  Tomorrow should bring some more nice weather as the week gradually gets warmer and drier.  We're looking forward to another day of operations and will post more soon.
