BIA/NPS direct exchange of resources
Bureau of Indian Affairs and National Park Service units may order resources directly from other BIA/NPS units without using the dispatch coordination system. This is usually done for non-fire type incidents such as severity orders and detail requests. Fire orders will be sent through the dispatch system.

Serious Injury/Accident Report
Dispatchers must provide for medical assistance first and then ensure agency serious accident reporting procedures are followed. In addition, these incidents will be reported to the Eastern Great Basin Center Manager or representative. Refer to the Eastern Great Basin Mobilization Guide for specific guidance on serious injury/accident reporting for Native American crew members.
The Fire Weather Forecast is broadcast twice daily. In addition, any weather updates including but not limited to red flag warnings and fire weather watches will be broadcast immediately. Field units are required to indicate they copied and understood the broadcasted red flag warnings and fire weather watches. Dispatchers should document which units copied the broadcast. NUIFC will fax the morning and afternoon information reports to the field stations and various district offices and post them to the NUIFC website at www.fs.fed.us/r4/nuifc.
