California’s wildfire crews face a unique situation – the need to conserve precious water while ensuring that an adequate supply is available for emergency response.  With ocean saltwater not usable (due to corrosion of equipment), the crews must be able to access freshwater sources like rivers, reservoirs, lakes and even swimming pools.  But, with low levels, access to these traditional sources can be difficult or even impossible.

Metal drums a poor choice for helicopter slinging

Double Drum collapsible fuel drum for helicopter slinging

For decades now, metal drums have been the most common method of transporting diesel and jet fuel by helicopter to remote sites such as the top of a mountain or deep into a wilderness area.  
 
Unfortunately, drums are a poor choice considering they were never intended for this use and carry a number of inherent risks including injury to workers who have to handle the heavy drums on a daily basis and leaks that result from minor punctures.  While these leaks may not be significant, when multiplied by the sheer number of drums in use, a substantial amount of fuel is being released into the surrounding environment every day from small leaks. On the positive side, none of this needs to occur any longer.
