On January 13 experts from all three of the Air Force Reserve Commands C-130 special missions will convene at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs for the first ever, AFRC C-130 Special Missions conference. All three missions provide significant contributions to our nations Defense Support to Civil Authorities (DSCA) missions. The high experience level of its Airmen and the ability to respond to natures fury at a moments notice makes the Air Force Reserve Command an ideal partner in these missions.

For the past two weeks, at the request of the USDA Forest Service, and under the direction of the Joint Forces Air Component Commander, members of the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve, along with numerous active duty counterparts and other federal agencies have responded to the wildfires that have been plaguing Texas and the southwest border region.  Modular Airborne Fire Fighting System (MAFFS) has been deployed to aid in this effort.  MAFFS is a self-contained platform aboard Air Force C-130s, and to date, the C-130s have discharged nearly 200,000 gallons of retardant to help contain the massive fires.

Subject Matter Experts from MAFFS as well as the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, Idaho, also participated during the Bloggers Roundtable to discuss the firefighting efforts and answer questions about their respective roles and capabilities.
