    I hope you guys enjoy this video! It's obviously quite an enormous topic that people will spend years studying condensed down into a ten-minute video so this isn't the comprehensive guide to stopping wildfires but for those that know nothing about wildfire suppression techniques I hope this will be interesting and informative!

      Why do I see no mention of tanker trucks in the video? Wouldn't such trucks be important to enhancing the road as a firebreak (and tanker trains for railroads)?? Otherwise the same way you describe use of aircraft? except with the advantage of lower cost ? and the disadvantage of being limited to roads? or perhaps some grasslands? Do tanker trucks get used extensively against wildfires? or do fire trucks just transport men and hand tools?

      Wendover Productions could you give us a vid on controlled mining explosions?
      I’ve been curious on the subject due to the Amazonia wildfires and that got me thinking on those very long controlled explosions that are used in mining. They seem to move a lot of dirt in a very short amount of time; question is, are they cheap and easy to deploy?

                                    This was pretty helpful for me since I'm not from wildfire country and know little about fire science. I did know that wildfires are often a natural occurrence and necessary for a healthy forest, but was not aware of the specifics involved in containing a wildfire. Very interesting.
