The Sawyer's Bar Town Hall sits amongst trees, slightly off the main street where the Fire Information Bulletin Board has the latest information about the Salmon River Complex Fire, not far from this location at Sawyers Bar, CA in the Klamath National Forest, Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2013. Fire fighters specializing both structural and wildland firefighting from Tahoe National Forest, Mt. Shasta-Trinity National Forest, South Yreka Fire Department, Dunsmuir-Castella Fire Department and others, have been called to the Salmon River Complex Fire, and conduct their structure-by-structure assessment of the urban intermix environment, at Sawyers Bar, CA in the Klamath National Forest, Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2013. The firefighters advise resident about fire prevention measures they are doing on their own as well as other measures they could take to prepare for fire. Actions such as moving away firewood, cutting and clearing plants next to their structures, and using garden hoses to soak structures and grounds all help in the event the main fire comes into their town. There are two types structure environments in the realm of wildland firefighting. This urban intermix structural protection environment is generally the more challenging, where structures have been built within a wildland area, isolated to some degree from other structures, but with no separation from wildland fuels (trees, brush and grass). This requires each structure to be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Fire protection measures will be tailored to each situation; defending these structures require a more complex solution, more firefighters, equipment and resources per structure.
