The intent of this resource
is to provide a library of information on significant wildland fire
events in order to assist individuals who want to conduct staff
rides to those sites...and to provide a reference source for individuals
who want to develop new staff rides for incidents of local interest.
A staff ride consists of three phases: the first phase is a preliminary study of a selected incident, the second phase is a visit to the actual site associated with the incident, and the third phase involves an opportunity to integrate the lessons derived from the study and visit. The various tools and references found in this resource will allow staff ride facilitators to address all three phases in designing a staff ride.
The NWCG Leadership Subcommittee is the sponsor for this resource.
