Boise Fire Department

wildfire training

Members of the Tech Rescue Team had the opportunity to train with the

Idaho Army National Guard yesterday. The video shows the team working

to secure the patient, then hoist them up to the helicopter. This type of

rescue would be utilized if Air St. Luke's support was unavailable or for

very remote areas. This is the first year working with the UH-72 Lakota

helicopter. Special thanks to Senior Firefighter Mike Barbero for

coordinating the training!
