Watching the air tanker debate from afar, the community of Estes Park should be more worried about the strategies and tactics the fire agencies use for early suppression of wildfires that abut communities than the number of air tankers in the national fleet. With a vast country like USA being subject to major wildfires and then being reliant solely on these low numbers of large aircraft for aerial intervention, your community could be left wanting.

Early and rapid dispatch systems with smaller aircraft works well for early fire control and community protection and the models of dispatch developed by LA and Kern County warrants your community to investigate further.

How about Udall pulling his head out of his a@@ and coming up with real legislation like taking billions of dollars away from the Muslim Brotherhood and funding thinning projects. It's simple.
