TYPE 1 CREW LISTING: 
All Crews that are funded for Type 1 IHC certification by the agencies will be listed, but not necessarily in the rotation (see Rotation below). If a crew is not meeting the requirements for Type 1 within the Standards for Interagency Hotshot Crew Operations Guide (SIHCO), an "*" is placed beside the crew name indicating T2IA status.

WITHIN AREA T1 IHC ASSIGNMENTS: 
SWCC will generally assign the closest IHC Crew to incidents in the Southwest. If the closest crew is on an "Available Day Off (AD)" status, SWCC will instead mobilize another Type 1 IHC that is on duty and available in the area. The "AD" crew will not be mobilized if there is an available crew within 100 miles additional travel distance to the incident than the "AD" crew.

T1 IHC OUT OF AREA ROTATION: 
The rotation is built according to when crews come available in the Spring. Next in-line rotation will be when the crew returns from out of area, met work rest guidelines, and becomes available nationally (A).  If a crew is shown AL, C, U, or MD, the rotation will go to the next available crew.

IHC CREWS QUALIFIED AS T2IA
IHC Crews who do not meet the Type 1 qualifications as outlined in the SIHCO at the beginning of the season will not be added to the out of area rotation until such time that the crew returns to T1 status and a new Appendix C is approved and submitted to the SWCC.  Crews losing T1 status during the season will remain in rotation (as Type 2IA) for no more than one out of area assignment. If the crew does not re-gain Type 1 status by their next out of area assignment, they will be removed from the rotation.

NOTE ON T1 IHC CREWS BORDERING NEIGHBORING GEOGRAPHIC AREAS:
Crews located close to Southwest Area boundaries may get initial attack/short duration assignments across the border to a unit directly adjacent to the Southwest Area and the crew will retain their slot once released and available again.  Date and time needed may also necessitate deviation from the out-of-area rotation.

Commit date (Date Com.) - day the crew started a 14 day tour.
Incident commit (Inc.Com.) - day the crew was assigned to the current incident.

SWA TYPE 2 / TYPE 2IA CREWS

NOTE ON T2 CREW REQUESTS
SWCC places orders for T2 crews to the Dispatch Center only. The Dispatch Center decides which crew(s) within the Zone will fill an order. When crews are assigned to a Geographic Area other than the Southwest Area, the crew can be re-assigned within the new Geographic Area and the SWA will not necessarily know about the re-assignment.
