A Multi-Faceted Approach
The first step in the Obsidian Fire Solutions (OFS) process is to assess the fuel type and loading of the work environment. This is done by one of our project managers who has years of experience working for federal agencies including the United States Forest Service. Our project manager will assess the region of work and calculate the work load and estimated time required to complete that section of line.
The next phase of the OFS approach is the load out phase. Obsidian understands the complexities of “cutting line” and we know that not every project is the same, so why should the crew equipment load out be the same? Our project manager will determine how many saws and sawyers each team should utilize versus how many lineman each team should have for maximum efficiency.
Next we construct a plan depending on the client’s needs. This plan will cover various aspects such as vegetation extraction, crew logistics, i.e. food, water and shelter, equipment repair and replacement, etc.
The final phase is getting to work.
