Hotshots and other organized Handcrews are 20-person crews composed of a diverse but cohesive group of temporary and professional career firefighters. There are 5 levels or types of crews: Type 1 Interagency Hotshot Crews (IHC), Type 1, Type 2-Initial Attack (IA), Type 2, and Type 3. Handcrews train together and work together to build fireline, burn out areas to widen their firelines, and mop up after fire. They use chainsaws and hand tools such as pulaskis, mcclouds and shovels. Hotshots have more training and experience than other handcrews. Hotshot designation has undergone some changes of late. Some Hotshots - the traditional hotshots or Type I Interagency Hotshot Crews (IHC) - are a "shared national resource" and come from the USFS, BLM, NPS, and BIA and are often dispatched nationwide from NIFC in Boise, Idaho. There are also Regional Hotshots (RHC) and crews working toward IHC status that may be held closer to home. For more information: the. For info about hotshots, check out the or visit the or the. The Regional Hotshots do not yet have a webpage.
Helicopter Crews(flight crews, helitack, or rappellers) usually work in concert with their helicopters and are designed for a quick, aggressive response to wildland fires in remote areas. These firefighters are "groundpounders" who have often have previous experience working with helicopters, or are specifically trained for their particular type of insertion into remote areas via helicopter. Depending on what they do, they must be self-reliant and work both independently and as an organized crew on the ground in conjunction with their helicopter or not.

ville, California. I got what I wanted working on the F4-C Phantom II's as an crew chief. I was pumped-up at George, the flight line was large and noisy. With 90 F-4 Phantoms and 45 F-105 Thunderchiefs (Thuds), it was a dream come true. My job was the next best thing to flying them. I was assigned to the F4-C Wild Weasels' Squadron, 35th OMS White Section at George AFB. I had no idea at the time of the scope and importance of what I would be doing, help train pilots for the Wild Weasel mission in Vietnam. I learned later that these guys (pilots) would be the "First-In" to blast the SAM sites before the main events and the "Last Out", keeping the SAM sites down until all of our aircraft had left the area. The Wild Weasels' mission started with the F-100s and was a bit dangerous. But it was all dangerous for everybody. I can look back now and see and understand the part I played in the "Big Picture" of Vietnam. Today I work on the F-16 Fighting Falcon in the South Dakota Air National Guard. I am not the young naive airman I was in 1974. Today, I stop sometimes and think about those days on the flight line in the high desert and look at the part I played. I hope all those guys (pilots) I helped train made it home. God Bless America, MSgt Jeffery D. Hofer, South Dakota Air National Guard.
This training method is meant to be used with other power development methods in a complete training program to improve the relationship between maximum strength and explosive power (Radcliffe 1).
I was originally assigned to an attack squadron based at Whidbey Island, Washington with a detachment on the John F. Kennedy. While I was training in Whidbey Island, a young married man asked if I wanted to trade orders with him to Japan. I jumped at the chance. I was sent to a reconnaissance squadron at Atsugi, Japan. The squadron had EP-3s, EC121s and EA3-Bs. We had a detachment at DaNang airbase right along the flightline. We went there for six weeks at a time. I went there six times in the years from 1970 to 1972. I watched the process of the war winding down. Some of my favorite memories were watching the F-4s take off and land, watching "Puff the Magic Dragon" in the sky at night, going to different places around DaNang and getting to go to other countries. When I look at the pictures of those times I am always struck by how young and innocent we were. It makes me nostalgic for those times and people.
