In order to efficiently and effectively manage firefighting operations on the #DixieFire, management teams will amend the current management zones. This will allow firefighting operations to utilize the closest resources to the fire lines resulting in enhanced firefighter safety and increasing firefighting suppression efforts. The amended zones will also enhance aviation safety increasing firefighting suppression efforts from the air.
Dixie Fire management teams are continually assessing firefighting operations for the safest, most efficient, and most effective fire suppression strategies. This zone amendment is a testament to the strong collaborative effort of both management teams that will continue working together for the benefit of the citizens safety, firefighter safety, and operational effectiveness.
