Management Codes

A commitment must be made on both the regional and national levels to provide a charge code to the Smokejumper unit when a request is made for travel to and from a fire with Smokejumper personnel. An overtime authorization should also be approved at this time. In most cases the Smokejumper unit can handle these costs, but when the story is of national interest and extra personnel are needed, cost sharing is a good way to divide cost among the units and agency involved in the story.
