Galena Fire Management Zone, Coordination Unit (LLAK9F1910)
The Unit is the Coordination Center for the Galena Zone. The Unit is the focal point for internal and external assignment and movement of all resources for the Zone. The Unit dispatches tactical suppression resources and provides logistical support within the Zone, works closely with the Alaska Interagency Coordination Center to fill orders for resources, and compiles intelligence and disseminates reports pertaining to incident status, resource availability, weather and fire danger forecasting on daily and annual basis.
Galena Fire Management Zone, Logistics Unit (LLAK9F1911)
The Unit directs and coordinates all logistical support services for Galena Zone, headquartered at a remote field station. Functions include housing operations, dining facility, vehicle fleet management, facility site planning and maintenance, fire cache management, property management and hazardous materials program. The Unit functions are specific to Galena Zone and operations are performed on a smaller scale with a smaller staff than those at Fort Wainwright. Services are provided in support of internal Zone operations, other BLM operations within the Zone, and external cooperator operations within the Zone. Support operations are closely coordinated with the other Zones and the Logistics Operations Branch.
