Hey, big boys!

Two Sikorsky S-61N helicopters showed up recently at the airport in Slave Lake. They’re on contract with the provincial government in wildfire suppression and are based here now but will be moving wherever they are needed around the province. According to information from Wildfire Information Officer Leah Lovequist, each unit carries a 1,000 gallon tank for fire suppressant gel, which it will drop on or next to fires to prevent spread.
