The Redmond IHC is a detail crew - the program offers intensive fire management skill development through formal classroom instruction, along with on-the-ground fire experience. Crewmembers fill assignments and as part of a fully qualified hotshot crew.

"The experience I gained on this crew really strengthened my ability to make decisions and work with people," says Byron Bonney.  Fire Staff Officer on the Clearwater/Nez Perce, Bonney says his experience on the Redmond IHC really helped him over the years in his career. "Fire management is one of the few areas left in the Forest Service where decisions have to be made very quickly. Decisions can have a great impact on the safety of people - and this is a responsibility we can't take lightly. It is gratifying to have been able to be involved in such a rich organization; I've been blessed by it and wouldn't trade it for any other job."
