The description on the print states:

H305 is a Helitender Support Unit (HTSU) manufactured by West-Mark and based at the Prado Helitack Base in Chino, California. It serves as the S70i Firehawk’s primary support vehicle and travels to incidents to provide fuel and operational equipment. The Helitender is crewed by a single Fire Apparatus Engineer and has capacity for four additional personnel. It carries 900 gallons of Jet-A aviation fuel in its 1,000 gallon tank and can transfer that fuel at a rate of up to 60 gallons per minute. H305 also carries backup equipment including rescue gear and medical supplies, and other items needed to support the crew on extended attacks such as out-of-county bags and Meals Ready-to-Eat (MREs).

Prado Helitack responds to more than 100 callouts per year in an area that encompasses Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties, and the Cleveland, San Bernardino, and Angeles National forests.
