2018 Incident Response Pocket Guides

Good call NWCG – this cover will do exactly what it’s intended to do – set this version apart.

But why are we even talking about the window dressing? Let’s get to the meat.

Check out the list of parts with significant changes:

List of Significant Changes

That’s a lot of big deal stuff. You should go through this list item by item to get familiar with it.

See that last item on the list? You might want to pay special attention to that one.

Yeah, the Medical Incident Report changed. You know, that super critical communication tool we use when our sisters and brothers get hurt.

Look close:

New Medical Incident Report

How many lines do you see? That’s right: 8 not 9.

Yeah, it’s different – that’s OK.

This is an improvement.

This is the one we have.

Uniformity matters.

Now do these two things:

  • Make sure you have this one (we all need to play off the same sheet of music).
  • Practice using this one. Drill Drill Drill – it really helps.

Eyes forward folks – let’s get to work on getting better.

Complaining is not work.

  1. Mmmmmmm… it’s about time. Purple. The color of the legendary Lassen Grizzlies. Coincidence? Probably not. That’s a championship caliber IRPG right there. Hopefully there’s a few pages in there about Lassen’s last second Hail Mary win over the Corning Cardinals in the fall of 2000. Maybe some fireline fitness pages on how championships are won in the weight room.
