Wildland Fire Services
Capstone Fire & Safety Management is one of the largest private wildland fire services provider for fire suppression and fire prevention in the United States. Our company has extensive professional experience serving the U.S. Federal Government, State of California and some of the largest utility & construction companies in operation.
We provide contract wildfire services to Federal Incident Management Teams throughout the nation. The geography we serve is broken up by region as defined by the U.S. Forest Service. Our units are positioned in Regions 3, 4, 5 and 8 (see map below) for quick deployment to aid in complex, large wildfire events. We field a large fleet of fully staffed fire apparatus to include tactical water tenders and quick-attack wildfire engines with advanced emergency medical capabilities. Our operations are led by a professional fire command staff and dispatched by a state-of-the-art field technology and full time dispatch staff.
In addition to serving the U.S. Government, Capstone focuses heavily on providing remote fire, rescue and safety services for some of the nation’s largest utility, construction and infrastructure companies. We serve in critical safety management and field roles serving major projects throughout remote service territories for construction and maintenance projects. Our command staff seamlessly integrates with project management to manage all aspects of fire, rescue, training and compliance for operations in sensitive or regulated areas. Our management staff handles permitting processes, planning and logistics, theater-wide emergency operations coordination and project pre-planning.
We position Firefighter EMT/Rescue personnel in strategic areas of projects operating in remote areas prone to fire and long response times by traditional fire response agencies. Typical scenarios we oversee include Construction and Maintenance, Hot Work, Road Grading, Helicopter Operations, Trouble Calls for distribution networks, High Wind Events, Red-Flag Warnings and approaching wildfire protection among many others.
Our teams have extinguished many fires started inadvertently by crews performing hot work, grading or other fire threatening activities and have been credited for preventing negative legal and insurance actions for our clients. Teams have also responded to countless medical emergencies for construction or utility personnel operating in very dangerous areas to include enacting rescue operations for trapped or injured workers. Our capabilities include quick attack fire suppression and prevention, helicopter safety support, rope rescue for low and high angle emergencies such as vehicles over-the-side, roll overs or tower pick off rescues. All of our personnel are very experienced fire/rescue experts and all carry Emergency Medical Technician licensure.
