Tangent Link's global Aerial Firefighting series returns to Sacramento, the home of CAL FIRE. Thought leading presentations and case studies will debate key subjects including Tactics, Training and Technology, bringing together the very best minds in understanding the advances being made in this safety conscious profession.   

"Aerial Firefighting North America offers a unique platform for aviation experts to collaborate and engage in thought-provoking conversation. I am confident these opportunities support meaningful outcomes that benefit not only the fire service but also the communities we serve."
