California Preparing for Busy Wildfire Season

California is mobilizing its firefighters as the summer wildfire threat escalates.

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is asking the CAL FIRE agency to prepare now for potential wildfires.

Schwarzenegger: We need every firefighting resource and tool on ready alert. So that we can if there's a fire breaks out anywhere we can be ready for action. So today, I'm signing an executive order directing CAL FIRE to immediately mobilize additional personnel and equipment. Which means more fire crews, more fire engines and also more helicopters and airplanes.

Schwarzenegger is asking state agencies, including Emergency Services, the National Guard, the Conservation Corps and the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to coordinate their actions with federal and local agencies. 

He wants to maximize California's fire prevention and fighting capabilities.
