ERICKSON’S APPROACH TO FIREFIGHTING

Erickson has done more than perfect the art of firefighting from the sky—we invented it altogether. As the world leader in aerial firefighting for 20 years, Erickson supports state and federal agencies around the world to control and extinguish fires. We’re a front line defender serving the communities we support across the globe.

Aerial firefighting support with the S-64 Air Crane® aircraft combines the capacity of a fixed-wing tanker with the accuracy, technique and refill speed of a helicopter. When you need to fight flames fast, we can deploy lighter craft with a hover pump snorkel that can fill from even shallow water sources in just 30 seconds. From the sky, not only can we survey the blaze more accurately, but we can also keep ground crews out of harm’s way and reach remote areas without delay. After we’re done, our aircraft can deploy stabilizing hydroseed to jumpstart the revegetation and erosion control in burn areas.

Protect your people and environment with the best private firefighting and suppression team around—Erickson is always ready.
