Fire Dispatch and YOU!
  • Your mission, should you choose to accept it . .
    . to navigate your way through the system of
    people who cant agree on what to call you.

3
First Things First . . .REDCARDING!!
4
This, unfortunately, is not a Redcard.
5
THIS is a Redcard. I realize, it is not actually
RED per se. But it used to be, okay?
6
But Bianca, you ask HOW do I go about
getting this so-called Redcard?
  • Learn to love your IQCS ADMINISTRATOR!
  • Taskbooks, certificates, list of assignments
  • You need to be entered as a READ or READ(T), but
    it is possible you could end up going out as a
    THSP.
  • There may be some pleading involved . . .

7
Your IQCS Administrator will issue your
Redcard.Be sure to check - Expiration
dates - Signatures - Listing of
Qualifications - Fitness Rating
8
HintJuly is not a good time to pursue obtaining
a Redcard.March or April would be a better
choice.
9
Now that Ive got my Redcard, Im good to go,

  • WRONG

Now you enter the land of . . .

Important Things to Remember
  • Do NOT leave for your assignment without your
    Resource Order.
  • Keep a copy of your Resource Order (I recommend
    keeping them for a year.)
  • Take note for your records of how many shift you
    work on the fire, what the fuel type is, and how
    big it gets.
  • Do not be afraid to ask for a performance
    evaluation for your records.

16
What to Expect When You Go on Assignment
  • Dont be caught off guard, be prepared to be gone
    a full two weeks.
  • If you want it, bring it. Dont not count on
    them having it.
