This year is shaping up to be a severe and very active wildfire season. The Nevada Division of Forestry is grateful to have this new helicopter providing vital support for wildfire management and response across the state. Now more than ever, access to advanced life and property saving equipment is critical to best protect all Nevadans and the treasured wildlands that we all love throughout the Silver State.”
