Part 3 of Tom Harbour’s Exit Interview

Tom Harbour, National Director of Fire and Aviation Management for the U.S. Forest Service, was interviewed by Bill Gabbert for Wildfire Today, December 14, 2015.

In this final installment of the three part series, Mr. Harbour talked about the Cantwell-Hastings Bill that requires a criminal investigation of firefighter fatalities, fire areas that need more research, the accomplishments he’s most proud of, previous fire directors, what he will do after leaving the USFS and whether or not he will lobby for Lockheed-Martin.

  1. Thank You Tom and Bill, great interview.
    Tom you and many of those you mentioned in the interview were great partners with Los Angeles County Fire. I am a of firm believer that there is no greater corporation and teamwork in the all the country than that of LAC and ANG. We could mention many but lets just say you Tom were part of building the partnership that still exists today.
    Thanks for the memories.
