NB Firefighters

An abandoned campfire, dry conditions and a strong wind. Suddenly you have an inferno in your own back yard. Local firefighters throw everything they have at it, but still need reinforcements - New Brunswick's Fire Bombers. They flew to Nova Scotia in the spring of 2009 to help save a Halifax suburb.

Based in Miramichi, this is the only place in the Maritimes where you'll see 18 planes on standby for fires. Including World War II vintage bombers called The Avengers.
