Another fire erupted today in SoCal, but in Oak Glen in San Bernardino County. The USFS run fire brought in it's heavy air tankers. The Martin Mars( Tanker 223)and 2 DC-10 air tankers (Tankers 910 and 911). Along with Single Engine Air Tankers (SEATS), Cal Fire S-2T's, and numerous helitankers.
I didn't shoot this footage though.
As a Californian I must contest that we push Governor Schwarzenegger to use prisoners like Governer Bill Richardson did of New Mexico, to clear brush and fire threats around Santa Fe.
Climate change worldwide and the devastating tree eating beatle bug infestation has left almost all the pines destroyed.
Up to 20,000 prisoners could be used to help prevent devastating fires like this, maybe even setup programs for early release.
What do you say?
