WASHINGTON (KABC) -- The United States Forest Service announced Thursday it would contract a full-time night-flying firefighting helicopter beginning next year. The helicopter will be used for dropping water and flame-retardant on fires. The Forest Service plans to use the helicopter in the future to also include emergency medical transport and aerial management of controlled burns and wildfires in progress.
The new contracting helicopter will be used exclusively by the Forest Service for firefighting operations. The Forest Service currently uses other helicopters on an as-needed basis under established agreements with several Southern California organizations, according to the agency.
