Bullhead Technical Rescue Team Member Firefighter Kynan Kridel practices stepping into the hovering Kingman Air Ranger helicopter from the ground Monday. The key is not to disturb movement of the helicopter as a person's weight is added. Kingman's Department of Public Safety Air Ranger helicopter practiced coordinating wild land firefighting water drops using a large "Bambi Bucket" and rescue team practice with Bullhead City Fire Department Monday. Practicing water drops and helicopter rescue skills can help prevent injuries during a real emergency.
