Lewis & Clark Hotshots

Lewis & Clark Hotshots
Interagency Hotshot Crews are elite firefighting teams used in the hottest sections of the most difficult fires. IHC trucks from Oregon Fish and Game were also parked here at a Klamath Falls hotel. I saw some of them walking into the hotel, filthy and exhausted, no doubt ready for a shower, dinner and a beer.

"The primary mission of IHCs is to provide a safe, professional, mobile and highly skilled hand crew for all phases of fire management and incident operations. IHCs are staffed, conditioned, equipped and qualified to meet a variety of strategic and tactical wildland fire assignments. The organizational structure allows IHCs to form into small modules or squads and accomplish independent assignments." From: www.fs.usda.gov/science-technology/fire/people/hotshots
