FENZ training at Nelson Airport.

 This morning FENZ (Fire and Emergency New Zealand) carried out a firefighting training session by the Western grass area at Nelson Airport utilising ZK-HPE4 the Airbus Helicopters AS 350 B2 operated by Nelson Helicopters Ltd.

Four FENZ units, (including a tanker) and around 15 personnel set up a portable "pond" from which to pump into the "bucket".   
Very interesting to watch.   
I understand that most of the FENZ people were nine months through their training run by National Training Staff.  
This is the second time this month I have observed this activity taking place.
