NWSA was awarded an MOU with Region 6 PNWCG to perform Record Verification for Engines and Faller's for the 2017 Year. Below is information on how to have you verification's done.  To see a copy of our MOU click here.

What records will be verified this year for the 2017 VIPR Agreements?

  • Be sure to download the appropriate checklist below to send in with your records.
  • Engine Personnel (if previously verified and no changes in position you just need the RT 130 date, the Pack Test Sheet and completed inspection list.)
  • Fallers (If previously verified in 2017 you just need the RT 130 Date and the Pack test sheet along with the completed Inspection Form)
  • If you have a ODF Crew Agreement, we will also inspect your FFT2’s as ODF does not inspect FFT2's and if you might use them on engines they  must be inspected. ODF WILL NOT BE INSPECTING ENGINE BOSSES THIS YEAR.
  • Note: On Faller's we are NOT verifying level of faller qualification, only verifying that they have had the the appropriate training and if appropriate the RT130 this year if the Basic Firefighter Course was taken in a previous year, and that they have a current pack test for the year.

Fee Schedule:

NWSA Members will pay:

  • $15.00 for Initial Inspection on Employee/ or Position Move Up
