I could see the law suits coming and they should be. Where is the assistance for the people who lost everything in the Sawtooth and Millard incidents. CDF knew that the DC-10 was sitting over at George Airforce Base for what a year. CDF knew that it could put ten times the fuilds on the fire and they did nothing. Shameful!
CDF response is 2600 guys with shovels and Earth movement equipment on an environmentally weak area vs a Air Superiority way of thinking with these 747's and DC-10 Conversions to dump 10 times as much on a fire as a 1st and an initial response before tractors and shovels.
Why use backfires sometimes larger than the initial fire? Would anyone burn the desert around them before putting every drop into the fight 1st? Why not use the technology what is the CDF waiting for? A less environmentally impacting response as well, use the big jets, dive into this I can not believe we have waited so long.
