Supervisors Given Update on Additional Heli Hydrant

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors received a report on the feasibility of placing additional Heli-Hydrant water tanks in San Diego County, and the report recommended a Heli-Hydrant on Volcan Mountain.

The supervisors’ 5-0 vote January 25 approved the report on the feasibility of additional Heli-Hydrants. Several locations were identified, and additional planning and outreach were also addressed.

“I certainly appreciate this work and look forward to continued movement on this topic,” said Board of Supervisors chair Nathan Fletcher.

“I’m very excited to move forward and launch additional Heli-Hydrants throughout San Diego County, particularly in the unincorporated area. Anything we can do to aid in more frequent water drops on wildfires in the backcountry will actually net more successful outcomes. The goal is always to reduce the forward rate of spread of fires to our more populated areas and to protect homes and businesses of all residents in San Diego County,” said Supervisor Jim Desmond.
