This video provides information and explanation on Pre Detemined Disptach, The new Large Air Tankers (LATS), VIC State Fleet, Firebombing with an Air Attack Supervisor present, and Incident controller responsabilities for Firebombing if Bomber or Helitack is there before Air Attack Supervisor, or no Air Attack Supervisor. Also what to do if on the fireline with aircraft and also caught in drop zones.

This video goes for about 12 minutes, but is a worthwhile training video.
