Dubai firefighters use Bond-like technology to reach waterside fires

DUBAI (KGO) -- Firefighters in Dubai are taking to the skies, looking like James Bond, to put out fires with spy-level technology.

They're racing to waterside emergencies aboard jet skis. When they arrive on scene they use jetpacks instead of traditional ladders to help them reach the fire.

Firefighters use a system that pumps water from a creek to the devices. That gives them an unlimited water supply of water and helps them avoid getting stuck in traffic.
