Air Attack Operations

CAL Fire uses resources on the ground and in the air to effectively fight  wildland fires.  Fixed wing aircraft are used for Air Attack Operations. 

 
 
 
 
 
 


 
 
On the Ground
The Incident Commander (IC) operates on the ground in the vicinity of the fire.  The IC is the overall commander of the fire.  He coordinates all the resources needed to fight the fire.
 

In the Air

RAAB uses Air Attack 310 to provide an overall aerial view of the fire for the IC.  Air Attack 310 coordinates the airspace over the fire directing air tanker and helicopter water drops where they are required.
