As the sunset yesterday behind the western hills of Sanel Valley, Hopland Fire Protection District Volunteer Firefighter volunteers gathered in a clearing along Feliz Creek to practice their mobile attack skills, Chief Mitch Franklin told us.

Mobile attack is a specific firefighting technique is also known as “pump and roll” or “rolling attack”. It is an efficient method of controlling wildfires, especially in light vegetation, in which an engine drives along the edge of a fire while a firefighter walks ahead extinguishing the fire as they move.
