After spending most of June and July with chainsaws in hand, enhancing wildlife habitat and reducing community wildfire risk around Southern Oregon, Lomakatsi’s crews have now transitioned to wildland fire response.
Our 20-person hand crew is on day 10 of assignment in the eastern corner of Douglas County, Oregon, where they are supporting containment efforts on the Potter Fire, currently estimated at 279 acres on the Middle Fork Ranger District of the Willamette National Forest. They have also been involved in initial attack on several lightning strikes in the area. Here are some photos from the field.
Lomakatsi’s Type 6 engine and crew remain on patrol in the High Cascades Ranger District near Prospect, on assignment from the U.S. Forest Service- Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest in response to red flag conditions and the potential of lightning strikes in the area.
We’re proud of our crew members and grateful to them—and to all the other wildland fire personnel and first responders—for working near and far to protect communities across the West.
