Fire Resources

In the event of major fires that require assistance beyond normal mutual aid, the official state system for tracking and requesting resources is the Comprehensive Resource Management and Credentialling System, will be used to locate and dispatch resources.  Please ensure that your department’s equipment and contact information is CURRENT in CRMS if you wish to be considered for such incidents. If you don’t already have a login for CRMS, contact your county’s emergency manager for access. 

The Wildland Aerial Suppression Program (WASP) is trained pilots who demonstrated proficiency at drops and have agreed to work on wildland fires.
