Aerial Wildland Fire Control and Suppression

Airstrike has adopted a Safety Management System (SMS) consistent and compliant with USFS standards.  The SMS provides clear operating and policy guidelines that all large air tanker operators are required to maintain and follow.  The foundation of the SMS addresses four components:


• Policy

• Risk Management

• Assurance

• Safety Promotion


Custom designed for Airstrike Firefighters, our SMS provides and promotes a positive safety culture.  The Airstrike safety culture is informed, flexible, learning, and is an operational culture that captures the operational knowledge and experience of our seasoned and highly skilled employees.  The end result of the Airstrike SMS is to achieve the status of a High Reliability Organization (HRO).
