Wildcat Helicopters arrived with an entire contingent of belly tank equipped 212EP and 412 helicopters to fight this fire. Each 369 gallon tank fills in under 30 seconds via the electric pump in the snorkel which the pilot lowers when a refill is needed. They can fill from any water source at least 12 inches deep. Very good accuracy with these machines in dropping retardant, water, foam and gels.
