Over the next few months I will be posting comments, observations and my experiences on things I have to do or things I come across as part of my job as a Fire Lookout with the USFS in Salmon-Challis National Forest. Case in point. Our team went north to the Stein Lookout at the north part of the Forest (8555ft). A supervisor from another district accompanied us in their POV (pickup) and departed about an hour before our team. On our way back to Challis we came upon them ( I will not say him or her that’s not the point) alone they had a flat the vehicle war equipped with street tires and the front righ got cut on my he sidewalk. We got the tire changed and them on their way. 1.Situation: they were on an incline with the front downhill. 2. Using rock on rocky surface as chalk blocks. And using a bottle jack. All what I considered a bad situation. Also the Forest Service Vehicle we were in did not have proper recovery gear. (( I only I had driven my overland rig?)). I convinced them to move the vehicle down hill about 75th to a more level location and I found two split blocks of tree parts from a cutting operation as chalks. Safer then rock on rock. We still had to use the bottle jack but we were safer. My supervisor realized the error of not having recovery gear in the FS vehicle and will correct it. I did my best to share my knowledge without criticizing anyone and everyone was happy to get off the hill safely. I apologize for not taking photos. I welcome any comments or questions have a safe day and safe travels’s.
