About the Book
Firebombers Incorporated depicts spectacular wildland and suburban
firefighting by a large, privately-owned, firefighting organization.
Ground forces include bulldozers, engine companies, and smokejumpers.
The air wing consists of transport aircraft and air-tankers that use
leading-edge electronics and computers to perform pinpoint air strikes,
day or night. Founded by a diverse and dedicated group of firefighters,
business leaders, engineers, and ex-military personnel, it becomes the
most advanced organization of its kind anywhere in the world. By melding
together proven firefighting techniques with the latest in electronics,
computers, and space-age materials, an elite, hard-hitting force is
created that can fly all of its personnel and equipment to a fire
anywhere in the Western U.S. within a matter of hours. The story reaches
its climax with a massive brushfire that threatens to destroy a foothill
community east of Los Angeles and the residents trapped inside.

agencies supporting the families of injured and fallen firefighters.
