Servicing Fire Crews by Airplane
About twenty years ago when the use of airplanes in fire location and patrol was proposed, the idea was considered to be visionary. Today fire crews working in inaccessible areas are serviced by the airplanes. The possibilities and limitations of the method are described in the following article, the author of which has had broad experience in forest protection work. Servicing Fire Crews by Airplane may, therefore, be regarded as an up-to-the-minute, authoritative discussion of the use of airplanes in servicing fire crews.
