The tools for fighting forest fires comprise an eclectic mix ranging from high-technology to no-technology - from satellite and infrared sensor networks to shovels. On the ground the fire fighting infrastructure is similar to a military operation: A fire team is headed by a fire boss who in turn is assisted by a suppression boss and an intelligence boss, all operating from a base camp set up near the site.
