With some hot, dry weather around at the moment, Helitreck have begun preparations for the 2014-2015 fire season by assisting with aerial ignition and providing water bucketing machines in support of hazard reductions around Sydney.

Increased smoke activity is common around this time of year with the fire agencies conducting a number of hazard reductions to help manage growth in bushfire-prone areas. Helitreck has been using aerial incendiary machines to assist ground crews by filling in the areas that are difficult to reach, and also providing water bucket support in case of unpredictable conditions.
