After a very eventful Sunday and Monday of last week with the broadcast burn, we spent the next few days doing mop-up in the Crawls Corner unit. I was in charge of Starker’s small fire truck for the week; we used it often for putting out leftover hot spots and even spot fires that were persisting in the unit.
Thursday morning, Robert and I went back to the unit with Stephen and Lys as well as a couple of guys who were controlling a drone that would fly over the unit with a thermal camera, detecting where hidden hot spots were under the visible soil.
That was an awesome experience. We saw how technology can be used to make the process of mop-up more efficient.
This week is back to stocking surveys.
