30th Civil Engineer Squadron wildland firefighters, known as “Hotshots”, use brush knives to remove low-level ‘fuel’, or shrubs, from Tranquillion Peak Aug. 30, 2019, at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. Hotshots differ from normal firefighters as they do not use water to extinguish the fire, but use preventative measures to remove the ‘fuel’ from the fires potential path.
