The Fort Carson Fire Department and the 4th CAB are preparing to support airdrop firefighting efforts in the Black Forest community.

Command and control teams from Fort Carson’s Directorate of Emergency Services and the 4th CAB are heading to the El Paso County Incident Command Post to establish ground communications with air crews.

Once helicopter crews have positive communication with the ICP, they will depart from Butts Army Airfield and provide water drops as needed.
