On 3rd March 2011 Croatian Canadair CL-415’s from the 93rd Air Force and Air Defence Firefighting Squadron engaged in fire suppression activities near Smoković-Gornja Murvica in Zadar County.

Although the fire broke out in inaccessible terrain due to landmines left over from the 1990’s war, the Canadair waterbombers managed to put out the fire in a matter of hours. In February, the Croatian Firefighting Squadron participated in 16 fire suppression activities.
