I like that you think outside the box.

More On Brain Storming Fire Fighting Strategically.

Should we consider tasking any existing Department of the Federal Government or modify an existing branch of the Department of Defense with the task of mounting higher numbers of assets, quick response capabilities to CONTROL forest fires? Notice the operating word here being Control forest fire.

It wouldn't be cheap.

I always check in with Juan Brown Web Link

There are two support strategies being emphasized for the Air Response strategy to our California fires this season (Summer 2020). This covers only air response not ground personnel.


(1) Helicopter Attack Bases , Livermore sees temporary Hummingbird base, temporary and highly mobile.


(2) 110 out-of-state aircraft much of which require well over 4000 foot runways.


The point being fighting fires are fought like our body’s immune system fights infections... all over, all at once, all the time.

Our immune system symbolically appears to need to be beefed up substantially. Too many of us are dying from forest fires. Immense loss of capital assets. We need to find a new balance able to swarm and smother out fires to manage forests on the one hand and protect lives and property on the other.
