Fire Season 2011-2012

It is that time of year again and we now have two dedicated KingAir B200 aircraft fitted with pressurized camera hatches for the Department of Sustainability & Environment’s specialized scanning equipment. The aircraft are housed at our Melbourne head quarters on 24/7 standby, should a fire or multiple fires break out some where in the state. It’s nice to know that we have this type of capability of sending “real time” information to the command center, assisting in the accurate relaying of information to the crews on the ground. Lets hope that we do not have to use it for anything too serious.
