CalFire’s Aerial First Responders


CalFire’s aerial firefighting fleet is the largest of its kind in the world. Today’s guest, award-winning and best-selling author Bonnie Tsui, reported for Alta on the men and women who battle California wildfires from the sky. These first responders, many who fight fires in their own communities, face unique and complex challenges—challenges that are only growing as California deals with our new reality of the mega fire.

Bonnie’s work has appeared in the New York Times, California Sunday, Outside, the Atlantic, and many more.
