Re: Fires in Sonoma...again - Geyserville

Air attack is a great asset. But in a wildfire you can drop all the retardant and water you want....it will not put out the fire. It only slows/knocks the fire down enough to allow ground crews to be able to get in and extinguish the fire.

I don't think the urgency to order is going to be the normal going forward but I may be wrong.
