Service Center

The Butte Unit Service Center is managed and operated by the Unit's Logistics Officer, Stephanie Edson. She is responsible for procurement, storage and distribution of supplies, tools and equipment used by personnel assigned to State and County stations and facilities within the Butte Unit. She is also responsible for transporting any additional equipment requested, as well as subsistence and hydration to the scene of an emergency incident. She facilitates feeding and lodging of firefighting personnel during large incidents that extend into multiple days. The Service Center functions as a re-supply unit for firefighting personnel and apparatus who respond from other units and other agencies to assist with a local incident that is large, or extended duration.
