Wildfires in the state of Oregon are burning out of control. There are over 20 significant fires in the state that are affecting citizens both directly (loss of property/life) and indirectly (health issues due to smoke inhalation).

The US Forest Service has access to what is possibly the most powerful wildfire fighting tool in existence; a 747 aircraft capable of dropping far more water/retardant than anything else available today. The US Forestry Service has refused to use this tool due to contract disputes, and their refusal is directly affecting residents in the state of Oregon. 

This petition is to demand the forest service re evaluate their position on the global supertanker, and utilize this powerful tool to help control the fire situation in the Western U.S., and encourage Governor Brown to work with the Forest Service to give our firefighters the tools they deserve when conditions allow!

 

***Global Super Tanker Info***

The 747 Super Tanker is capable of delivering 20,000 gallons of retardant anywhere in the United States within 2.5 hours of being called upon.
