Type 3 Helo Arrives at Medford ODF

The Oregon Department of Forestry’s Medford Unit welcomed a Type III helicopter onto its helipad this morning. It is on contract to the unit through fire season, and can be used to transport firefighters, haul and drop buckets of water onto fires, and fly reconnaissance missions.

A larger Type II helicopter will be arriving in a few days, adding to the Southwest Oregon District’s air power fire-fighting arsenal.
