Forest firefighting

Nowadays, everyone agrees that helicopters are an essential asset for forest fire-fighting.

Our helicopters are equipped with “Bambi buckets”, a collapsible bucket used for lifting and dumping water or fire retardant chemicals. It utilises a pilot-controlled valve that can deliver a concentrated column of water from the helicopter to the fire, exactly where the fire brigade needs it. The “Bambi bucket” is a highly-efficient precision with qualities that support the Civil Security own fire-fighting actions.
