BULLHEAD CITY — Being a Technical Rescue Team member with the Bullhead City Fire Department often can require working with a helicopter. Wildland fires often can be stopped fast with helicopter water drops. Monday, the Arizona Department of Public Safety Air Rescue provided two different levels of training for the firefighters.
The training was divided into two parts for two groups of firefighters. The first training with the helicopter was in regard to wild land firefighting. The Kingman-based helicopter, with the use of a “Bambi Bucket,” can make water drops of 100 gallons each. Lead pilot and instructor Terry Miyauchi explained how and when the helicopter can be useful.

HOPE – The Province’s fire crews are testing a new, made-in-B.C. product this summer expected to improve delivery of water to small wildfires, Forests and Range Minister Pat Bell said today.
“Our fire crews’ motto is ‘hit hard and hit fast’ for a good reason – when fighting wildfires, every minute counts,” said Bell. “This new bucket system, the first of its kind in the world, will help ferry water to our ground crews faster, which also frees the helicopters to spend more time dropping water on the fire lines.”

SEI Industries Ltd. is pleased to announce the launch of its new proprietary Fire Resistant Arctic-Shield™ fabric, designed specifically for above-ground secondary containment products.
SEI’s new industrial fabric represents the first time a fabric has been engineered specifically for secondary containment of hydro-carbons in arctic environments. It is also the first above-ground secondary containment fabric that is fire resistant to NFPA 701 standards. Since other types of fabric use under-ground secondary containment liners, they are tested to a less stringent fire resistant standard because they are typically buried under six inches of gravel.
Fire Resistant Arctic-Shield™ fabric is unique because it is the first fabric that combines all the critical features needed for cold climate secondary containment of fuels and has the tear, puncture and abrasion resistance to be used in above-ground secondary containment applications. It is:
