And the Lassen Modoc Ranger Unit of the Cal- ifornia Department of Forestry and Fire Protection has proven to be ready. Be- cause they were prepared. The CDF completed three days of readiness exercises at Eagle Lake on July 13. The readiness exercises in- volved nearly 15 fire units from Susanville, Westwood, Bieber and Alturas under the direction of Lassen Modoc Unit Chief Bob Taylor and Op- erations Manager Don Poston. The drills also included per- sonnel from the Antelope Camp, east of Susanville and five inmate crews, Intermoun- tain Camp, two miles west of Bieber, which has four inmate crews and Devils Garden Camp, southwest of Alturas that has five inmate crews. The exercise also had seven lookout towers participating in the drills. The operation also included inmates from the California Correctional Facility in Su- sanviUe. The purpose of the Eagle Lake drills was to test person- nel and equipment in several emergency scenarios, similar to the types of incidents the firefighters encounter day in and day out. This is the eighth year the Lassen Modoc Unit has held the exercises and Taylor said the experience is invaluable. "Every year, each full time firefighter must pass a profi- ciency test," Taylor said. "The public expects a high level of performance and it's our job to make sure they get it." The three-day exercise in- cluded five separate areas of training and evaluation; The traffic collision evolu- tion, interface zone evolution, lightning fire evolution, EMS Incident Station and the hose- lay evolution. The objective of each of the evolutions, or exercises is to provide safety first, apply niques and procedures and fi- nally to complete required ad- ministrative and safety inspec- tions on mobile equipment. "The crews are not judged on whether they pass or fail," Susanville Interagency Fire Center Chief Tom Reed said. "We look to see what decisions are made and then assess how we can improve on those deci- sions." In each evolution, a team consists of three to four mem- bers, which includes a fire cap- tain and two to three firefight- ers. In the traffic collision evolu- tion, the scenario involved a one-vehicle accident with three victims: the driver, her passenger and an infant. The driver misjudged a turn on the side of the road. An engine crew arrived on the scene and immediately went into action. They did not hurry but performed in a me- thodical, professional manner. The fire captain immediate- ly assessed the situation and communicated his needs to a dispatcher. Those requirements could include but were not limited to a helicopter and an ambu- lance. On arrival, two members of the fLre crew went to the aid of the victims, determining flu'st who was most injured and who needed immediate care. After assessing the needs of the vic- tims the crews went to work stabilizing the injured. At the same time, another downed power lines 1 off limits, laying in case of a gasoline assisting other crew with equipment Lg the cident proctor Joe critiqued the listened to f'n'e team.
