The description on the print states:
N821LA is a Sikorsky S-70i FIREHAWK medium-lift utility helicopter operated by the Los Angeles County Fire Air Operations Section and based at Barton Heliport in Pacoima, California.
Los Angeles Air Operations helicopters perform firefighting, hoisting victims, short-haul, medical transport, swift-water rescue, large animal rescue, transporting firefighters, high-rise rescue, ocean rescue, and command and control. Configured for the firefighting and rescue role, the FIREHAWK can carry out fire suppression with a retractable snorkel feeding a 1000 gallon (3,785 l) Kawak belly tank at a rate of 1000 gallons per minute. NVG lighting in the cockpit allows the crew to perform fire suppression at night. The aircraft’s twin General Electric T700-701D turboshaft engines generate 3,880 shp powering the aircraft to a top speed of 224 mph (360 kph), a service ceiling of 20,000 ft (6,100 m), and a maximum range of 289 miles (465 km).
