August 27, 2016 – Fire activity has diminished as a result of cooler temperatures and recent precipitation.  Crews completed handline along the ridge line between Crandall Creek and Squaw Creek.  Fire containment has increased slightly to 60%, and is expected to further increase.  Some remaining crews are rebuilding damaged fence lines in the fire area as others assist the Crandall Ranger Station with removal of fuels. 

Steep, rugged terrain, snags, and heavy dead and down fuels will continue to remain a safety concern for firefighters.  Command of the Hunter Peak Fire will transfer at 8:00 p.m. today from the Albuquerque Type III Incident Management Team to a Type III organization from Powder River Ranger District, Bighorn National Forest.  Demobilization of engine crews begins today; one crew, one helicopter, and one local engine will remain available.

A red flag warning is in effect from noon to 8:00 p.m. Saturday.  Despite warmer temperatures and drier conditions beginning Saturday, fire activity is not expected to increase.  High temperatures Saturday and Sunday will range between 61 and 66 degrees in higher elevations, and 75 to 79 degrees below 7000 feet. Relative humidity range between 14-25%.  Winds will be west-southwest at 5-10 mph Saturday and Sunday, increasing to 10-15 mph up slope and up valley.  No precipitation is forecast for Saturday or Sunday. 

A community meeting will be held this evening at 6 PM at the Painter Store to discuss the transition plan for the Hunter Peak Fire.

Park County Sheriff’s deputies recently trained with REACH Air Medical Services on the use of medical evacuation helicopters.  Classroom training included the operation and limitations of the helicopter as well as the proper techniques for setting up a safe landing zone at the scene of an emergency and assisting the helicopter in a safe landing.  The team then practiced “hot loading” the helicopter with a patient.  Obviously, time is at a premium when evacuating a critically injured victim.  That is why it is essential to load the helicopter while it is running (hot load).  Shutting down the helicopter (cold load) can be done but it sacrifices time.
