The Klamath Interagency Hotshot
Crew was established in 2001 under the National Fire Plan, and quickly
achieved Type1 IHC status in August later that same year.
With the crew stationed out of the Oak Knoll Work Center along the
mighty and majestic Klamath River, Johnny Clem took on the task of
Superintendent along with Asad Rahman and Scott English as Captains.
With endless help from those on the forest and a fantastic group of
employees, they constructed a solid foundation which continues to be
built upon today.
Aaron Schuh started with the crew in 2001 as a squad leader, then was
promoted to Captain. Johnny, Aaron and Devin Parks continue to run the
crew today under the credo and mantra, “Work hard have fun, a season of
sacrifice for a lifetime of tradition”
Although this program has only been around for a short time, they have
upheld Interagency Crew values and have begun to build a solid
foundation of memories and tradition, one chain at a time.
