Part 3 of Tom Harbour's Exit Interview Tom Harbour, National Director of Fire and Aviation Management for the U.S. In this final installment of the three part series, Mr. Harbour talked about the Cantwell-Hastings Bill that requires a criminal investigation of firefighter fatalities, fire areas that need more research, the accomplishments he's most proud of, previous fire directors, what he will do after leaving the USFS and whether or not he will lobby for Lockheed-Martin. Tags interview, Tom Harbour4 Comments on Part 3 of Tom Harbour's Exit Interview Part two of the three-part series of interviews with Tom Harbour, National Director of Fire and Aviation Management for the U.S. In this segment, Mr. Harbour talks about how many firefighters the USFS will have in 2016, tracking firefighters and the location of a flaming front, smokejumpers, the agency's responsibility regarding protecting structures, and the decline in the number of air tankers between 2002 and 2013. Tags interview, Tom Harbour Tom Harbour, Exit Interview Part 1 Tom Harbour, National Director of Fire and Aviation Management for the U.S. In this Part 1 of 3, Mr. Harbour talked about his early years, how studying chemical engineering helped him in his USFS job, working with politicians, and what it was like dealing with firefighter fatalities. Tags interview, Tom Harbour Tom Harbour, USFS Fire Director, announces retirement Tom Harbour at Little Bear Fire Tom Harbour at the Little Bear Fire, Lincoln National Forest, New Mexico, June, 2012. USFS photo. Tom Harbour, the National Director of Fire and Aviation for the U.S. Forest Service has announced that he is going to retire after serving in the position for 11 years. He plans to leave the agency in January after a 46-year career. Mr. Harbour headed the wildfire organization during challenging times. Fires continued the ongoing trend of becoming larger (most likely due to climate change and increasing fuels), they consumed more of the USFS budget, and the air tanker fleet decreased by 80 percent following accidents and contracting issues until it started to be reconstructed again during the last two years. Mr. Harbour spent much of his career in the Pacific Southwest, Southwestern, Intermountain and Northern Regions. His early assignments were on the Stanislaus National Forest in California, the Challis National Forest in Idaho, and the Apache National Forest in Arizona. He later worked as District Ranger on the Modoc National Forest and was the Forest Fire Management Officer on the Angeles National Forest in southern California. He served as Deputy Director of Fire and Aviation in the Northern Region, and Regional Director, Fire and Aviation in the Intermountain Region. In 2001, he moved east to Washington D.C. to become the Deputy Director of Fire and Aviation at the agency headquarters. In 2004 he was named National Director. Dan Olsen, currently the Deputy Director, Fire and Aviation, will serve as Acting Director after Mr. Harbour retires until the position is permanently filled. Kyle Dickman profiles Tom Harbour A good portion of the piece by Kyle Dickman profiles Tom Harbour, the U.S. Forest Service's National Director of Fire and Aviation Management. I don't recall seeing such a personal look at the man who wields power at the top of the USFS firefighting food chain - with the possible exception of when he answered our 12 Questions. Below is an excerpt from the article: ...To contend with California's regular fires, the Forest Service set up two command centers, with one, in Redding, called North Ops. Redding sits in a bowl in the Sacramento Valley, and as Harbour arrives, the wind is filling that bowl with eye-stinging smoke. Three days earlier, Harbour had flown to Alturas, Calif., to pay his respects to the family of that engine captain, 38-year-old Dave Ruhl. His crew didn't find his body right away, and while CNN and the Associated Press zeroed in on the details of the first fire death of the 2015 season, Harbour arranged to meet his folks, as he's tried to do for each of the 163 firefighters-both Forest Service and non-lost on duty in the past 10 years...

"The MAFFS are important because they provide a surge capability that can be used to boost wildfire suppression efforts when commercial airtankers are fully committed or not readily available," said Tom Harbour, director of Fire and Aviation Management for the Forest Service.


GAO Station Fire Investigation Update

Congressman Schiff, Stephen Gaty, Tom Harbour and Marty Dumpis.
On the panel were Congressman Schiff, Stephen Gaty from the GAO's Natural Resources and Environment team, Tom Harbour, director of Fire and Aviation for the USFS, and Deputy Superintendent of the Angeles National Forest, Marty Dumpis. Tom Harbour gave a rundown of how things have changed, and how the FS has prepared for the upcoming fire season. According to Harbour, the FS has renewed and strengthened its communications and agreements with the L.A. County fire department, and that they will be prepared. We were assured that it will be easier for the FS to summon assets from L.A. County in the event of another fire. There are 80 rotor-wing aircraft and 18 tankers in the FS fleet, he said, though he didn't make it clear that this is for the USFS nationwide. It is an aging fleet including WWII era craft, which they don't want to "wear out" by double-shifting. Many were dismayed at this revelation. He assured people that life and property are the FS first priority, while on the other hand seeming to indicate that the wearing out of an aging fleet takes precedence in the management of assets. Mr. Harbour was placed on the spot several times in succession as members of the audience questioned a policy that left their homes undefended.


They Said

This goes along with the WO where Mr. Harbour and I have a fairly good rapport and frequent dialogue.
As I've said before, they and others like Mr. Harbour have absolutely no lawful or contractual obligation to communicate with the FWFSA.
