Gila NF: Drummond Fire Update, June 10, 2021

Date: June 10, 2021

Announcement: Unless significant fire activity increases on the Drummond Fire, news releases will occur only as changes develop during the next week.

Location:  The Drummond Fire is one mile south of Emory Pass on the Gila National Forest, Black Range Ranger District, Sierra County, NM

Start Date:  May 19, 2021                Size: 501 acres                          Cause:  Lightning

Summary:  The Drummond and the Trujillo Fires were ignited by lightning on National Forest System lands on the Black Range Ranger District, Gila National Forest on May 19. Both ignited within the 2013 Silver Fire scar. The Trujillo Fire did not grow and has not generated smoke since May 21, 2021. During a June 1, 2021 isolated thunderstorm, the Drummond Fire received about .9 inches of rain and has remained smoldering in heavy downed logs. Yesterday it generated some small, isolated smoke columns, but its footprint has not grown since the June 1, 2021 rain and hot spots within the fire remain isolated.

A public meeting in Kingston yesterday, June 8, provided an opportunity for attendees to learn from the unmanned aerial system (Drone) operators flying and mapping the fire, how this fairly new technology is being used. Drones can map the fire perimeter, perform infrared filming to detect heat across the fire, and to otherwise provide timely eyes on the fire from above for incident managers.  Added benefits also were addressed of reduced danger to helicopter observation teams flying low level in treacherous terrain, at a much lower cost than those of helicopter use, and for more immediate availability to fire managers of current fire activity.

For safety reasons, fire managers continue to use indirect tactics to contain the fire, while assigned resources make improvements to fuel breaks erected around the fire, concurrently monitoring the fire’s activity.

Objectives:  Fire manager’s primary objectives remain minimizing the impact of fire on wildland firefighters, public safety, and protecting natural resources. 

Closures:  Black Range Crest Trail 79 – Closed from NM Highway 152 south to National Forest Road (NFRS) 886. Royal John Rd., Grandview Trail 146 – Closed from NFSR 523 Silver Creek Rd. to Black Range Crest Trail 79. Trujillo Trail 134 – Closed from Black Range Crest Trail 79 to Private Seven Brothers – Closed from NFSR 886 Royal John Rd to Black Range Crest Trail 79.

Smoke/Air Quality:  The New Mexico Department of Health site also known as 5-3-1,  https://nmtracking.org/fire  has good information and guidance on mitigating your smoke exposure.  Smoke-sensitive individuals and people with respiratory problems are encouraged to take precautionary measures by staying inside during heavy smoke periods and avoiding outdoor activities.  Smoke will be visible and settle into the area of Kingston, Hillsboro, Lake Valley, and will also be visible on NM Hwy 152 and Interstate 25.

History

On October 2, 1943 a group of businessmen and property holders met in the Drummond Civic Center to discuss forming a fire department in Drummond. The objective was to form a department with equipment and trained volunteers to protect the community from fire. The first fire fighting apparatus made available and accepted by the department was a two-wheeled cart with two forty-gallon soda-acid tanks mounted on it. A detailed account of the history of the Drummond Volunteer Fire Department can be found in the book, Drummond Centennial 1882-1982, which is sold at the Drummond Historical Museum at the Drummond Public Library.

Now

Currently there are 20 active members on the Drummond Volunteer Fire Department.  The members meet the first and third Wednesday of the month at the fire hall. The first Wednesday is usually a business meeting with supper planned and cooked by one or more members. The third Wednesday is normally a drill night which means practice, speaker, demonstration, clean up, test equipment, etc. Most meetings begin at 6:30 pm and the food at the business meeting is greatly appreciated as many members come directly from work and have not stopped to eat supper.

Mutual Aid

Mutual aid is provided to and from the Drummond Fire Department as requested by the fire departments of Cable, Namekagon, Barnes, Grand View and Mason. Since many members of all fire departments work a considerable distance from their home location during the day, another department may be called upon to respond with personnel and/or equipment. Mutual aid may also be requested in the case of a large structure fire, grass fire or forest fire. In some cases the DNR office in Barnes and the US Forestry may request aid from one or several of the fire departments when a fire is in, or threatens, the forest. Also, mutual aid is provided when an emergency occurs like the storm that went thru the area in 1999 and the fire department personnel were out clearing trees from buildings and roads.
