Helicopters bring technology to the fire line. As an aerial command platform, aircraft can offer unsurpassed overall scene surveillance and be a communication platform to the fire commander.
Helicopters can also be used to fight fires directly, and to conduct rescues from hostile or inaccessible locations. Personnel and specialist equipment for varying types of emergencies can be moved quickly and easily to strategic locations, adding greater efficiency to any fire service operation.
Be it an incident requiring thermal imaging, or a response by a specialist CBRN team, the helicopter can provide a rapid and effective solution to the challenges facing a modern fire service.
