Helicopters are versatile tools for supporting firefighting operations, as we will see in this video. We are visiting fire bases throughout the state of Idaho and dropping water with Erickson Air Cranes in Italy.
You will notice helicopters of all different shapes and sizes, and they each have a specific purpose. Some are designed for dropping water and fire retardant solutions, some are designed to carry people, and some are designed to carry supplies. Despite their differences, they all serve the same primary objective; to support the men and women on the ground who are fighting to preserve key areas of land and property from destruction.
