[Graphic] - Southwest Area Zone Concept
ZONE CONCEPT

The Southwest Area is divided into nine Zones. Each Zone has its own interagency Zone Coordinating Group comprised of representatives from the Federal and State agencies within the Zone. The Group is responsible for overseeing fire management activities within the Zone, including individual and team training, Type 2 team management and organization, and establishment and daily operations of Dispatch Centers. Zones Coordinating Groups may oversee more than one dispatch operation.

DISPATCH CENTERS & UNITS

The Southwest Area has twelve Dispatch Centers that mobilize and demobilize resources directly with SWCC. The Dispatch Center is the focal point for mobilizing firefighting resources between units within the dispatch area responsibility, coordinating incoming resources into the dispatch area, dispatching resources mobilized out of the dispatch area, and collecting and disseminating fire intelligence information within dispatch area and with SWCC. There are additional dispatch centers within the Southwest Area, however these dispatch centers work directly with one of the dispatch centers within their zone instead of directly with SWCC.
