SUPERSCOOPER LEASE CONTRACT

EXTENDED ONE WEEK FOR FIRE WEATHER

LOS ANGELES COUNTY – To prepare for the anticipated fire danger as high winds are forecast for Los Angeles County, Mayor Michael D. Antonovich announced that the contract for two SuperScoopers fire-fighting aircraft leased from the Government of Quebec will be extended an additional week by the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

SuperScoopers can carry up to 1,620 gallons of water and takes only 12 seconds to scoop water from a lake and inject it with fire-resistant foam – a combination up to 3 times more effective than water alone. They can be airborne in as little as five minutes and fly three hours before refueling.
