rotto helitac

Emergency services are ready should there be a conflagration on the beautiful island.

Rotto Bloggo was at the airport yesterday writing about helitacs: fire-fighting helicopters. We took many photos and have been poring over the resultant chopper porn.

But we always have Rottnest on our mind. So we asked: as well as Kings Park and the hills, do the heitacs put out the blazes on Rotto?

They haven't lately. But they do a bit of practice there. Inflatable pools are set up with water, and the helitacs hover over the plastic while sucking it up.

We didn'get a pic of that, but here's a photo of a sheet pinned up in helitac HQ: it's on the list.
