All unplanned wildland fires at Point Reyes National Seashore (PRNS) receive aggressive initial attack action by the nearest available suppression forces. Initial attack is an aggressive suppression action consistent with firefighter and public safety and values to be protected.
Fire suppression resources at Point Reyes National Seashore include:
1 Type 3 engine
1 Type 6 engine
1 Hazardous Fuel Module (8-10 person crew)
Through a Memorandum of Understanding, Marin County Fire Department and other West Marin fire agencies have also been authorized to undertake initial attack actions on PRNS lands. This allows cooperating fire agencies to assume authority for initial attack until a qualified federal Incident Commander and personnel arrive to establish Unified Command of the incident.
