The description on the print states:

Vina Helitack Copter 205 is a UH-1H Super Huey based at the Tehema-Glenn Unit in Vina, CA. The crew consists of one pilot, two fire captains, and five firefighters. Their primary responsibility is to respond to callouts for initial attack on wildfires and other emergencies.

Copter 205 can deliver a 7-person helitack crew with firefighting hand tools and drop 324 gallons of water and foam using a Bambi Bucket. The helicopter and crew may also be used in a number of other missions including hoist rescue, aerial ignition, cargo sling load, troop transport, reseeding operations, and mapping. Vina Helitack responds to approximately 180 fire and emergency calls a year in an area that covers north to Shasta County, south to Butte County, east to Plumas National Forest, and west to the Mendocino National Forest.
