Wildfire Predictions for 2019

I found this on one of my emergency management feeds today. This is an interesting website that is perhaps relevant to us because of our tanker base.  

The maps on the landing page look “good” for the Tahoe area, but if you take a look at the link for “Fire/Fuels Danger” under Predictive, it shows a bit different regional picture for us.

One of the things we can expect this year from the tanker fleet is virtually 100% turbine/jet aircraft.  Fast and big planes in the pattern, that suck a fair bit of Jet A on the turn.
