However, many of the necessary classes and training are not even offered on an annual basis.These clarifications would have been much more useful a couple of years ago.The BLM engine crew has a GS-7 Captain who is only funded for 13 pay periods, and 2 seasonal firefighters. I understand this is a state office mandate and it is certainly not enough to support the numbers of BLM fires we get.The other problem is the Captain, who now will only work for 6 months, will have extremely limited opportunities for attending training sessions, teaching on training cadres, hiring the crew, participating in Rx burn plan development, maintaining or increasing fire qualifications, etc. The USFS PR budget has to supplement the BLM understaffed fire program.My Captain is already looking at USFS or Cal Fire positions so he can once again have permanent full time employment. I have the BLM budget to support a 7 day effective engine crew but it seems funding the fire suppression resource is the lowest priority.On this unit, the Zone FMO does not have any authority over how the dollars are spent. My question is, how are other BLM engine crews/fire management programs being funded and supported?
Ab, and other calendar collaborators, I just got my calendar in the mail the other day. How much does the Forest Service pay for one person to attend this training? Maybe we could use that money (TFM/401 programs) to increase our pay and then maybe retain some of these folks instead of spending so much of it on the 401 program.Find my i Phone (Activation lock) check is one of the most helpful functionality of our IMEI checker."We are one global family All colors, All races One world united.Furthermore mobile service providers use IMEI number in order to authorize the phone in the network. Bill Frankel and Ken Yarger were both Palomar Hotshots on the Cleveland in the 70's and are both Deputy Chiefs for the Camp Pendleton Fire Department. If not do the entire survey, could those organizations at least gather the numbers in house? I, like so many others, want to retain our outstanding folks.
IMEI, as well as MEID (Mobile Equipment Identifier), is a form of a common international standart that is called ESN (Electronic Serial Number).
