Bell Helicopter, May 31, 2016 - This May, Fort McMurray in the regional municipality of Wood Buffalo, Alberta, Canada experienced the largest mass evacuation in its history following a wildfire outbreak.

Tens of thousands of residents had to flee their homes and businesses as the blazes ravaged the Canadian oil town.

"The damage to the community of Fort McMurray is extensive and the city is not safe for residents," said Alberta Premier Rachel Notley in a press briefing the week of the wildfire outbreak.

In response, the government of Alberta declared a provincial state of emergency.

Military, government agencies and aerial firefighting groups were just several of the many who answered the call. Although we all hope disasters like this one are avoidable, we are proud to say that some who answered the call are those who operate Bell helicopters. Mustang Helicopters and Helicopter Transport Services responded.

Mustang Helicopters is seen here operating its Bell 205 as it drops water from its bambi bucket to suppress the fires.

Another customer, Helicopter Transport Services also operated some of its Bell helicopters during the disaster relief.

We send our thanks to those like Mustang Helicopter and Helicopter Transport Services and the many others who are working tirelessly to end this devastating wildfire. We are continuously in awe and inspired by the work our customers do day-to- day, but especially in moments where they provide hope and relief.
