DOI/USFS carded?


Recommended Posts

Still not finding it. Does any one know off the top of their head? Or who specifically to call to find out? I'm pretty sure there is a 150' Long line req. as well as "mountain/ high dens alt" time. Just having trouble finding the specific amount.

Try this:

 

http://amd.nbc.gov/fc/library/ARASpecsTerms&Conditions.pdf

 

page 11 and pg 17 (probably others too, but I was only skimming)

 

 

It spells out the minimums, but I didn't see the sling stuff. Talking with an inspector today he said 10 hours as a minimum experience, and he emphasized that is a minimum, that there is also the proficiency, which was to keep a load on a 150' line within a 10' radius, I believe, within 5' of the surface for 30 seconds. Tighter tolerances and 2 minutes for a live load. Sorry that i couldn't find the exact reference, but he also said the the specific contract may have tighter requirements.
