An in-depth look at how aircraft, and the people who fly them, help to prevent and fight fires in Canada's forests. Planes can assess fire risk from overhead, spot fires at early stages, drop fire-retardant chemicals in dry areas, transport firefighters and equipment into remote areas, and deliver water from nearby lakes. Produced in cooperation with the Ontario Department of Lands and Forests and the Forest Protection Service of Quebec, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia.
