FOREST FIRE SUPPRESSION
Living in a heavily forested province, UHNL provides key support to government agencies in fighting forest fires.
Such operations call upon numerous skills and capabilities including long line slinging, water bucketing, bird dogging operations, and fire crew transport. All of UHNL's aircraft and crews are equipped and trained for such duties.
All of our bases are equipped with Bambi Buckets, capable of precision delivery of water to a fire. We have extensive experience with conducting prescribed burns and fire site perimeter infra red scanning.
Upon request, UHNL can provide dedicated safety and operational briefings to fire crews to facilitate safety around helicopters, as well as hover entry and exit operations.
