Second Fire-Fighting Helicopter Arrives


The Oregon Dept. of Forestry's Southwest Oregon District welcomed a second fire-fighting helicopter onto the Medford Unit's helipad today. The new helicopter is a Huey Type II that can haul and drop big buckets of water onto wildfires. This helicopter joins a smaller, Type III helicopter that arrived on July 4. Both helicopters are on contract to the SWO District until mid-September.
