Firefighting Helicopter Has Arrived


The firefighting helicopter arrived this morning at the port of Caniçal, 15 days before the start of the Operational Programme for Combating Forest Fires (POCIF). 

The helicopter was transported on board the ship Funchalense and will remain in the port of Caniçal until the end of the week.

After the propellers and other equipment are assembled, the helicopter will be transferred to the Regional Civil Protection Service (SRPC) heliport in Cancela, where it will undergo a final review before entering operational service on the 15th of June.
