The description on the print states:

Bieber Helitack Copter 202 is a UH-1H Super Huey based in the Cal Fire CDF Lassen-Modoc Unit in Bieber, California. The crew consists of one pilot, two fire captains, and six firefighters. Their primary responsibility is to respond to call outs for initial attack on wildfires and other emergencies.

Copter 202 can deliver a 7-person crew with fire fighting hand tools and drop 324 gallons of water and foam using a Bambi Bucket. On arrival at an incident, a fire captain and firefighters are deployed and initiate fire suppression actions. The helicopter and crew are also used in a number of other missions including air rescue, aerial ignition, cargo sling load, troop transport, reseeding operations, and mapping.

Bieber Helitack has an initial attack response area of nearly 4.4 million acres including Lassen, Modoc, and Shasta-Trinity National Forests.
