National Airtanker Base Program

The San Dimas Technology and Development Center (SDTDC) is wrapping up the 4-year National Airtanker Base Program. This program has developed standard plans and specifications for buildings, retardant mixing and storage plants, aircraft loading and handling facilities, and other base amenities. Several design teams were involved with upgrading 22 bases at a cost of more than $40 million.

Information about the program, including the standard plans and specifications, can be found on the Forest Service’s internal computer network at: http://fsweb.sdtdc.wo.fs.fed.us/programs/atb/index.shtml.

This site includes examples and forms that can be used to write a prospectus, document a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) decision, perform a value analysis, or conduct a source selection panel. A Web site is also available for fire support facilities standard plans and specifications on the Forest Service’s internal computer network at: http://fsweb.sdtdc.wo.fs.fed.us/programs/fire_fac/index.html. This site includes designs for barracks, engine stations, and helicopter and hot shot facilities.
