Heliskid is a compact and versatile skid unit for light vehicles designed for easier direct attack operations with a water line in remote areas. A device that can be moved on the ground or in the air, it has 6 times more water capacity than a traditional skid unit and a high-performance motor pump.
The Heliskid can be helitransported to remote areas pick up trucks can’t go so a tank can be located in a strategic point for extinguishing work. The purpose is to quickly deploy the structure/deposit wherever needed to be filled with water from a helicopter in inaccessible areas and pressure-feed the water from the tank through the fire pump and hoses.
