PUEBLO INTEREAGENCY DISPATCH CENTER (PIDC) 2007 ANNUAL REPORT

PUEBLO INTEREAGENCY DISPATCH CENTER (PIDC) 2007 ANNUAL REPORT Severe weather launched the 2007 season when PIDC ordered a Type 2 Team on January 2nd to support the storm ravaged South East portion of the Colorado PIDC Zone. Kansas was also affected by the same storm but no support was requested through PIDC. As spring started the zone supported the Southeast fire activity with Overhead and Engine resources requests. The zone experienced a normal winter and a slightly wetter than normal spring compared to the last several years. On May 4th Greensburg, Ks. was struck by an EF-5 Tornado with winds in excess of 200 mph causing loss of life and significant damage to the community. PIDC received the request to order a NIMO Team on May 6th to support the Greensburg Kansas Tornado Incident. The request for the NIMO Team was the first to be ordered within Region 2. PIDC set up an expanded organization on May 7th to support this incident until June 15th when the NIMO team departed but PIDC continued to support the local organization for an additional three days. Throughout this incident PIDC continued to take action in response to smoke checks and wildland fire activity (which remained light throughout the zone) and supported requests for resource orders, law enforcement, and responded to requests for medical aids and traffic collisions within the zone. As the summer progressed PIDC started to support other areas outside the region with Overhead and Equipment and at one time keeping over 200 Overhead out and 20+ engines assigned for 30 days.

Moving into the fall season PIDC zone started to see an increasing fire danger although the summer fire activity was very slow (lowest acreage and total numbers for wildland fires in the last five years) the fire danger was moderate to high most of the summer. On September 11th a lightning fire named the Big Cottonwood Fire was categorized as an AMR strategy and was finely contained and controlled in December. October going into November we saw an increase in fire activity and continued to support the only type three incident organization ordered for a fire incident with-in the zone all year, at the same time we continued to order Aircraft to support wildland fire activity into mid November and large fires were occurring the first week of December until a cold front brought much needed snow into the area. Our efforts to support out of region incidents still continued into November with PIDC sending out the first Engine Strike Teams from the zone to Southern California, we were able to send one strike team of Type 1 Engines and one strike Team of Type 6 Engines. As a result we will be looking at developing pre-determined Strike Teams of Engines for with-in zone use, as we have used Strike Teams with-in zone for the last two years (making them up as ordered) and we see this as a benefit to our agencies with-in the zone. Ending the year we saw snowfall finely start in the mountain portion of the zone with the plains being mainly dry with cold temperatures 2007 Fire Incidents 300 279 250 200
