along with L.A. County fire personnel showcaseda leased pair of Bombardier CL-415s from CanadaFriday morning, the aircraft will stay in SouthernCalifornia for 140 days to help firefighting in areasthat include, Altadena, Pasadena, Sierra Madre and 
other cities along the San Gabriel foothills.

“The jurisdictional agency fighting the fire, 
[Pasadena, Sierra Madre] they would make a 
request to us through their dispatch,” said Assistant 
Fire Chief Thomas Ewald (pictured above right). 
“If Pasadena were to have a fire they would make 
that request.” 

Last year the planes were dispatched more than 50times and dropped water in at least 20 of them.
He said in the case of fire that spreads into theNational Forest, there is an “initial action zone.” 

“When there is a 911 call, who knows? Is the fire

He also said they lease the scoopers this time ofyear because of wind, “you add that one componentthat makes an average fire extremely difficult.”

This is the 24 year that the county and Canadapartnered leasing the planes and Barger thankedeveryone involved.
