Lutte incendie

It is common to face wildfire in the mountains in difficult areas, which requires the use of the helicopter for a human and material intervention. BLUGEON HELICOPTERE is using a “Bambi Buckets” in order to fight against wildfire.

Bambi Buckets

fire solutions

[What’s a Bambi Bucket ?]
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

[How is the operation work ?]
The firefighters are spouting the area by helicopter to identify the most dangerous zone in order to start the operation to fight against the fire. Afterward, we are filling the Bambi-Bucket of water in a nearest watering place such as lakes.
