Fire Fighting

We provide fully equipped helicopters, together with highly trained ground crew, for aerial fire fighting in any location within the UK. Using the world renowned Bambi buckets, we can drop up to 200 gallons of water per lift. To complement this method, a "fire sock" can be easily attached to the bucket to allow a greater dispersion of the water (e.g. a mist) which can be more suitable for grassland fires. Our equipment also includes a Sacksofoam unit which has the capability to provide a blanket of foam to be laid should this be required.

Using a Bambi bucket on a peat fireWater can be picked up from the nearest water source, or if the location of this source would delay turnaround time, our portable dunking tank can be used.

We can offer a rapid response time, and 24 hour stand-by cover if required, so you can be confident that additional support is only a phone call away.
