Help fight forest fires: Stay clear of waterbombers!

When waterbombers approach a body of water, move close to the shore to allow them to perform their scoops safely. A waterbomber will not scoop from a lake or river if encroaching watercraft pose a safety hazard. Be safe and stay clear of waterbombers.

No Drone Zone: Be safe, stay clear of forest fires!

Flying drones around forest fires is both dangerous and illegal. Doing so puts the lives of pilots, firefighters, and other emergency personnel at risk. Be safe, and stay clear of forest fires.
