Mexico’s Environment Department said five teams of 20 trained, equipped firefighters from Mexico’s national forestry
commission will work with the U.S. Forest Service to help battle wildfires in California.

At least 100 firefighters from Mexico arrived in California on Wednesday to help battle several wildfires burning across the state.

Five teams of 20 trained, equipped firefighters from the Comisión Nacional Forestal, or CONAFOR, landed at San Bernardino International Airport where they were welcomed by officials with the U.S. Forest Service.

The firefighters, who hail from 22 states throughout Mexico, will undergo several days of orientation and training sessions before they will be sent first to work in the Sequoia National Park, according to the U.S. Forest Service.

The park is threatened by the SQF Complex of fires ignited by lightning in the Sequoia National Forest. The Sequoia Complex is comprised of the Castle and Shotgun fires.
