Bringing the water to the fire
NorthTree Fire provides aviation support services including helicopter and heli-base support. Additionally, we provide waterhandling for mobile retardant bases and foam operations, and operate a Mobile Gel Plant.
For major water-moving operations like helibase support, we can provide custom configurations of the equipment below, moving the water source closer to the fire, allowing aircraft to make more drops per hour, and increasing their effectiveness.
