This style file contains GSTOP -compliant symbols for fire season 2016. This style file removes the medivac site symbol as directed by Interagency Aviation Accident Prevention Bulletin No. IAAPB 15-02, "Identification of Helicopter Landing Sites for Medical Transport/Evacuation". It also implements a new symbol for "unimproved helispot". While installing this style file will not replace the default symbology in FIMT, it will allow a user who wishes to quickly add current symbology to ArcMap quickly.
This FIMT v.10.0.11s add-in is based on Fire Incident Mapping Tools (FIMT). FIMT v.10.0.11s for ArcGIS 10.0 or higher. Installation Guide, Revised: June 2016. The “s” at the end of the version name stands for “symbology”. FIMT 10.0.11s has removed the “Medivac” symbol from the symbol set and replaced it with the “Unimproved Landing Area” symbol as per direction from the NWCG Interagency Helicopter Operations Sub-Committee (IHOPS).
It is highly recommended that all users upgrade to FIMT v10.0.11s to be compliant with NWCG policies for “Helispot” mapping.
