• Language Skills Assessment

    Prompt and efficient communication between contractor crew personnel and government incident personnel is mandatory for safe and effective performance. At a minimum, contractor's strike team leader, crew boss and all three squad bosses of every crew shall be proficient in the English language.

    Language Skills Assessment (LSA) is a program mandated by the wildland firefighting contract wherein all crew bosses, squad bosses and their respective trainees demonstrate good oral and written language skills.

    The assessment is in two parts. The first is an oral assessment. The firefighter is asked questions verbally and must answer in either English or Spanish as requested. The second part is a written exam. The firefighter is given an Incident Action Plan (IAP) and must extract the answers to the questions from the plan. The results are then forwarded to their employers and Oregon Department of Forestry.
