In British Columbia, most helicopters use a 100 ft long line with a large Bambi bucket to fight wildfires due to the heavy forest cover and hard to reach ponds and lakes. They can lower the bucket into these hard to reach spaces and fill it with water without putting the helicopter rotor at risk of contacting trees or obstructions.
