Booker is right next to Tonopah, where a field office on the Battle Mountain District is located. The U.S. Forest Service has a ranger district located there and they have a remote base on Brock, a peak close to Tonopah. Dispatch for the Battle Mtn. District is located in Winnemucca, which is called the Central Nevada Interagency Dispatch Center or something similar. It is the only BLM district without its own dispatch. Central Nevada also dispatches the Austin and Tonopah districts of the Humboldt-Toiyabe as well as the Santa Rosa district of the same forest. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is also dispatched by the 5 interagency centers in Nevada. The National Park Service has its own comm centers, but are full interagency partners in wildland fire management. I think these NV centers also cover the fire function for the BIA. Late Hubby and I loved to explore Nevada's remoteness and listen to natural resource agencies on handhelds we carried on our backpacks. But, you haven't lived until you've stayed at the Mizpah Hotel in Nevada. We only stayed once as the tobacco smoke was unbearable.
