ROSS IROC Org Maintenance –This replaces the ROSS Org maintenance DMS email address. It is used for requesting updates to the organization screen for items such as; Frequencies, Host Unit ID’s, Addresses and Phone Numbers, and Request Blocks. The Request Org Update page on the ROSS website and each request form has been updated with this new email address. Email: ross_iroc_org-maint@firenet.gov

ROSS IROC Suggestions – This group is used to send Change Requests to the Resource Ordering Change Board.  Email: ross_iroc_suggestions@firenet.gov

A FireNet account is not required to receive ROSS/IROC user notices via the new mailing group.  However, if you are a federal, state, or local government employee, please use your official email address.

Additionally, please note that any ROSS User can and should subscribe to User Notices. If you know of someone who has not been on the DMS email list, please pass this along to them. You did not have to be on the DMS list to receive future notifications.

If you have any questions regarding any of the ROSS/IROC Firenet groups, please email Angie Hinker at ahinker@fs.fed.us
