We have enough problems with drones curtailing firefighting activities, we don't need inexperienced pilots that aren't in communication with fire crews clogging up the airspace and grounding the actual tankers while engaging in an activity that at best just raises the relative humidity of a tiny area slightly. Leave it to the professionals, don't try to be a hero.

Is it possible that if there was a fire near an area where a glider was flying (assuming this glider has water ballast) the glider pilot, being a Good Samaritan, could fly over and drop his load of ballast, and (assuming the field was near by) get back to the field?
