Bambi Bucket

Fighting fires with strength and precision around the globe

About the Bambi Bucket®

SEI Industries Ltd. first introduced the original Bambi Bucket to the firefighting community in 1982.  This lightweight, strong, flexible firefighting bucket, with its relatively low-cost ‘plug-n-play’ capability, promoted usage of helicopters on wildfires and saw immediate success as a firefighting tool.  By combining the Bambi Bucket with SEI’s already-existing water storage tanks and bladders for fire suppression, a sought after and valuable product line was created.

Used Around the World

Today, more than 30 years later, SEI services more than 90% of the world’s aerial firefighting water bucket market.  Globally, the Bambi Bucket brand is known amongst firefighting agencies and it has become synonymous with aerial firefighting.  The legendary Bambi Bucket is now used in more than 110 countries around the world by more than 1,000 helicopter operators.

Built to Endure

In building the various bucket models its offers, SEI uses materials that can withstand the forces of nature that buckets experience when slung under a helicopter over the fire line.

To create today’s toughest aerial firefighting product in the world, our bucket fabric selection considers the perfect blend of critical elements; tensile strength, puncture-proofing, abrasion resistance and resilient coating adhesion.
