About:

Regretfully, this has been an eventful fire season for California. One event that stood out is the work of two crews from the California Army National Guard (Cal Guard) - one flying a Chinook and one a Black Hawk - who combined to rescue more than 400 citizens trapped by the Creek Fire. These crews later received citations for their efforts from the president of the United States.

This webinar will feature Cal Guard pilots, copilots, and crew chiefs, each discussing how the operation was planned and what changed during the course of the mission. We'll also talk with them about the extensive firefighting operations they conducted over the summer.
