The act of extinguishing fires and preventing their spread, often carried out by trained professionals known as firefighters. Firefighting techniques involve the use of water, foam, and other fire-suppressing agents, along with specialized equipment and vehicles, to control and extinguish fires. In the context of wildfires, such as the Calf Canyon/Hermit’s Peak Fire, firefighting efforts may include aerial support, controlled burns, and the creation of firebreaks to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby areas. Legal disputes related to wildfires often address the effectiveness and timeliness of firefighting efforts, as well as the allocation of resources and responsibility among various agencies, such as the United States Forest Service, state agencies, and local fire departments.
