Wildland fire suppression is a unique aspect of firefighting.
Wildland firefighting requires different tactics, equipment, and training from the normal structure fire fighting found in populated areas.
Working in conjunction with specially designed firefighting aircraft, these wildfire trained crews knock down flames, construct a fireline, and mop up hot spots to protect watershed, wildlands, and the populated areas within the wilds.
Wildland fire suppression also addresses the issues of the "urban interface" where populated areas border wildland areas.
