Description

In light of the recent earthquake in Napa County, an inquiry was made regarding the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Helicopter Unit’s (Henry 1), ability to conduct urban search and rescue missions (USAR). Two days after the Napa earthquake, the Henry 1 crew conducted a joint training operation with the Santa Rosa Fire Department, demonstrating Henry 1’s vertical reference precision long line rescue technique. The Henry 1 crew was able to rescue 5 simulated victims from the 5 story Santa Rosa Fire Department training tower in under 7 minutes. The Henry 1 crew was able to perform these simulated rescues with the standard rescue equipment carried on the aircraft and without any additional personal.
