Fire Lighting & Fighting

Fire Lighting

To maintain some of New Zealand's rugged bush it is often necessary to conduct a controlled burn off.  This helps to clear land of unwanted vegetation ready for new planting.

The team at Tararua Heliwork are experienced in fire lighting and procedures that need to be put in place to ensure the burn off is safely managed. If you have an area that needs to be cleared be sure to give us a call to discuss how we can help you.

Fire Fighting

At Tararua Heliwork our experienced team are always on standby to help fight fires.  All of our pilots hold relevant qualifications and train regularly with other local fire services to ensure that their skills and information are always up to date.  We are a Fire & Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) approved operator.

Having the ability to fight fires from the air is often the safest option allowing water to reach the exact location without having a large number of crew on the ground.  Monsoon buckets can be a vital tool when unforgiving terrain makes it difficult to get water to the fire.
