More than 625,000 acres burned across Colorado in 2020 with the three largest recorded fires in Centennial State history.

With their indiscriminate power to destroy life and land, the fast-moving fires displaced thousands of residents and required the help of even more firefighters on the ground and in the skies.

Through conversations with pilots, Incident Response Teams and impacted communities, you’ll learn about how fire aviation provides support to manage increasingly extreme fire seasons, how ground and air teams work together and how you can get involved in the industry.
