Aerial fire fighting has kept us very busy so far this year with all the wildfires – quite unusual for this early in the season. It is heart breaking to see so many forests and moors devastated by fire, often started deliberately or by just not thinking what impact your BBQ or camp fire may actually have.
We have had such a dry period that the ground is tinder dry and can catch hold in a matter of seconds. Sadly it takes a LOT longer to regenerate after such devastation strikes.
Please work with the local fire services and look after your beautiful countryside. They work tirelessly to protect you.
Thank you to local PCSO Curtis Lodge for the fantastic photos – video footage can be found on our Facebook page @AirbourneSolutions.
