Help Fight Forest Fires: Stay Clear of Waterbombers!

  • When waterbombers approach a body of water, it is important to move close to the shore to facilitate their safe scoop. A waterbomber refrains from scooping from a lake or river if nearby watercraft pose a safety hazard. Prioritize safety by remaining clear of waterbombers.
