Type 2 Crew Rotation
Agency and Cooperator Type 2 and Type 2-IA crews will be placed in a rotation based on the order in which they 1st become available for the fire season. If NUIFC receives an order for a Type 2-IA crew the order will be placed with the 1st crew in the rotation that meets the IA requirement. When that crew returns from assignment it will go to the bottom of the rotation list. Every effort will be made to fill the order with the preferred type of resource. With the exception of the National Contract Crews, The type 2 crews listed here are classified as agency or cooperator resources.
