Put those boots on the grounds with the smoke jumpers out there risking their lives to save our homes!!
We are right in the path of the Card Street fire, and now Cooper Landing ignited last night in two places.
And poor Willow......

Most National Guard units, in areas that have large fires, have at least some firefighting training, and the ones that use helicopters have training to use them to help. The Air Force has 8 MAFFS certified aircraft, and multiple crews, but they can only be used when all the other firefighting aircraft that could be used are unavailable.
