    230419-N-EV253-1151 CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (April 19, 2023) – An MH-60S Seahawk helicopter assigned to the “Merlins” of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 3, uses a Bambi Bucket to collect water from Pulgas Lake during the Cory Iverson Wildland Firefighting Exercise at Camp Pendleton. The exercise, which is named in remembrance of wildland firefighter Cory Iverson, is held annually in conjunction with CALFIRE to increase emergency preparedness and cohesion between civilian and military firefighting agencies during California’s fire season. In addition to their CALFIRE counterparts, the “Island Foxes” of HSC-3’s Fleet Support Detachment (FSD) participated in the evolution alongside the “Wildcards” of HSC-23. HSC-3 FSD is the Aerial Firefighting (AFF) program manager for HSC Wing, Pacific. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Sara Eshleman)
