Quebec to provide forest fire services to Newfoundland and Labrador
The Government of Quebec will be providing forest fire services to Newfoundland and Labrador due to the substantial number and sizes of forest fires around the island portion of the province.
Quebec will provide two water bombers, one Bird Dog aircraft, one air attack officer and two technicians in Gander.
In total, seven crew members and three aircraft will be dispatched to the Central region for a five to seven-day period.
Newfoundland and Labrador’s fire suppression resources remain in place and continue to fight any potential forest fires. This includes water bombers, helicopters and fire suppression teams strategically located throughout the province.
