  PRESCRIBED FIRE CREW MEMBER (RXCM)

The Prescribed Fire Crew Member (RXCM) participates in prescribed fire operations, including: ignition, holding, mop-up, monitoring, etc. All Conservancy staff and volunteers actively participating on a prescribed burn must be qualified as either a Firefighter Type 2 (FFT2) or RXCM. The principal difference between FFT2 and RXCM is the lower minimum fitness requirement for RXCM.

Position Documentation

A Prescribed Fire Crew Member is responsible for maintaining awarded training certificates, fitness test documentation, and a log or record of their wildland fire experience. Typical fire experience log will contain: specific dates and locations of prescribed fire assignments; site name; burn unit name, size, and fuel types; and assignment held on the burn (e.g. holding crew, ignition crew, UTV patrol, etc). The Conservancy may retain copies of these documents in a state or local office for documenting an individual's information in the IQCS database. Last updated July 20, 2017.
