Mars bombers

Having been present at the presentation of the petition with over 18,000 signatures to Christie Clark's assistant, I was surprised all the media missed a very important point.

The Mars Bomber is the only plane that is able to drop a fire retardant gel that can prevent a home from burning. This product was not available during the 2003 fires.

I would think that many homeowners would welcome this if they were very close to where the fire was burning. The plane and this retardant has the potential to save a lot of homes and relieve many of us from the anxiety of losing our homes to wildfire.

Sincerely, Karen Abramsen
