Winema Interagency Hotshot Crew History

Winema Hotshots logoThe Winema Hotshot Crew traces its roots back to 1962 when the Star Inter-Regional Fire Suppression Crew was formed at the Star Ranger Station on the Rogue River National Forest. In 1970, the crew was moved to the Prospect Ranger District and renamed the Rogue River Inter-Regional Fire Suppression Crew, or the Rogue River Roughriders, as they were more commonly known.

The crew was renamed the Prospect Interagency Hotshot Crew in 1980, as a result of a national naming convention held that year. In 1982, the crew was administratively moved to the Klamath Ranger District of the Winema National Forest and renamed the Winema Interagency Hotshot Crew. It is still stationed there today.
