Strike Team Leader Engine
The Strike Team Leader Engine directs five engines of the same Incident Command System (ICS) type performing tactical missions on a division or segment of a division, on wildland fire incidents. The STEN supervises resources at the Single Resource Boss level and reports to a Division/Group Supervisor (DIVS). The STEN works in the Operations functional area.
Updated: The Task Force Leader (TFLD) and Strike Team Leader (STDZ, STEN, STCR, STPL) Position Task Books (PTB)(311-10) have been combined. However, the positions have not been combined. Strike Team Leader tasks are completed only once. The Required Experience for TFLD must be met prior to completing additional TFLD tasks. Upon satisfactory performance in the prerequisite single resource boss position, the specific strike team leader task book may be initiated. Once qualified as a Strike Team Leader, any additional single resource boss qualifications will also qualify the individual in that corresponding strike team leader position—without having to complete the Strike Team Leader PTB for the new position—once agency certification is documented on the PTB Certification page.
Position created. Task Force/Strike Team Leader in 1984 PMS 310-1.
