The record-high temperatures this summer, and resulting wildfires have certainly not escaped anyone. At least 20,000 hectares burned down in July with over 1000 people participating in firefighting efforts on the ground and in the air. During the month, over six water bombers were in the air at the same time, as well as a great number of helicopters.
Heliair Sweden is one of the civil companies that is participating in efforts to obtain an overview of the situation in Gävleborg Municipality. On Wednesday, one of their helicopters landed at the TelliQ office in Arboga to pick up GPS units to be assembled in helicopters and other vehicles owned by the company.
After only two minutes on the ground, they were back on their way north to continue their firefighting efforts.
