8/13/2020 CAL FIRE Tehama-Glenn Unit advised: Please be advised if you see smoke in the Paynes Creek area, fire personnel are conducting a control burn at Ishi Conservation Camp. Please do not call 911 if you see the smoke from the control burn. #CALFIRETGU2020   [SER concern: this didNOT show up on the National Fire Situation Awareness mapping, even though a smoke plum could be visually viewed on Camera. Why? answer unknown as of his writing. This item appears to be a good source for early information, but now, this appears to be an issue.]

  #FireMappers

NOTE:  as of 8/17/2020 this resource shows fire incidents not showing on other resources (including National Fire Situational Awareness.). Links to details don't appear to work in very recent events; however, the information on several fires (8/17/2020 agreed with Certain Camera views (e.g., Tuscanbutte 2; and the Flight Tracker). This shows that you must look at multiple resources. Also, Ground observations are critical.  Thank you AJ6KJ FOR THE BETTER LINK TO THIS RESOURCE.

EXAMPLE OF REPORT:  

"THIS IS INTERNET FIRE MAP. ON 760, POTENTIAL FIRE SHOWING IN AREA OF BLACK BUTTE AND WILDCAT  LAT  /  LONG    ......  END REPORT, OUT. (CALL SIGN)."

NOTES:  

SAYING YOU ARE "MONITORING" MEANS NOTHING. WE ARE ALL TO USE BEST EFFORTS IN MONITORING (i.e., "monitoring" is your standard procedure).  IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY, THEN GIVE A REPORT, AND BE ON FREQUENCY WHEN SOMEONE NEEDS ASSISTANCE.

YOUR TACTICAL IS WHAT MATTERS BECAUSE IT TELLS PEOPLE WHAT CAPACITY YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU ARE DOING - YOUR CALL SIGN DOESN'T.

 

  EMERGENCY RADIO NET RESOURCES:  INTERNET MONITORING STATIONS CAN USE ABOVE RESOURCES FOR BOTH LOCAL AND OUT OF AREA INCIDENTS. MUTUAL ASSISTANCE BETWEEN AREAS WILL BE NECESSARY WHEN ONE AREA HAS NO POWER OR INTERNET AND NEEDS INFORMATION. EXAMPLE OAK RUN HAD NO POWER 7/31/2020, BUT SHINGLETOWN HAD POWER. RECOMMEND AREAS SET UP EMERGENCY RADIO NET MUTUAL ASSISTANCE.

NOTE: WHEN GIVING RADIO REPORT - REFER TO THESE AS "INTERNET SOURCE", IN ORDER TO DISTINGUISH FROM YOUR ACTUAL GROUND BASED OBSERVATIONS.  THERE ARE DIFFERENCES! E.,G "WIND DIRECTION INTERNET  OUT OF THE EAST, 5 MPH"

FOR  TANGO 9A / 9M (SITREP) AND TANGO 4 (SMOKE CHECK) REPORTING, USE YOUR ACTUAL GROUND OBSERVATIONS (DO NOT USE THE INTERNET SOURCES FOR SUCH PURPOSES). NET CONTROL STATIONS MAY SUPPLEMENT ACTUAL GROUND OBSERVATIONS WITH INTERNET SOURCES IN DOING OVERALL REVIEW AND ANALYSIS.
