North Idaho fire and interagency fire center.This past summer, fires affected the residents in Northern Idaho near Bonners Ferry. Learn what it takes for the men and women involved to combat and prevent different types of situations. Justin Brollier. Safety officers on this fire. We monitor each divisions through the operations. They'll be they'll be going through each day. That evening, we'll have a meeting with operations, with the divisions, with safeties. There's an air attack base out there with helicopters, and we all get together and discuss our plans for the next day. And then the safety officer basically lists all the hazards that they can think of that they could face in those missions and look at is it a mission that we need to be doing? And if so, how can we mitigate as many risks as possible to make it a safe mission? So, for instance, driving out here, this is just a smaller incident, but driving out here, we talked about the animals. So just making sure to mitigate that, that we let people know each day and remind people because people are tired. They've been working 16 hour days, just simple things like, hey, make sure you get your lights on. Make sure you stick to the speed. It may seem a little slow, but there have been a lot of deer sightings. Make sure we make sure if there's buckets in an area where we plan to do bucket drops, that heavy equipment isn't working because they're dropping multi swimming pools worth of water down to the ground. And if you even have equipment like a dozers in there or it's in the buildings are in there plugging in hose or building line. That can be detrimental.
