PowerPoint

An error has been identified in the Unit 3 PowerPoint. The second bullet on slide 76 incorrectly references the NWCG Standards for Helicopter Operations, PMS 510, and states that the Firing Boss “Must” be onboard the helicopter. The  NWCG Standards for Aerial Ignition Guide, PMS 501 states on page 10 of 42 (bullet 14 under Advantages) the Firing Boss “CAN” be onboard during ignition sequences.

Applies to 2014 Version.
