This action was part of fire training for crews of college students and young men and women just out of college who haven't found permanent employment yet. Other training included outfitting the helicopter and bringing the helicopter to the temporary helport with firefighting equipment, all to prepare the crews for what BLM officials fear could be one of the worst fire seasons on record in the southeast Oregon area.Photo measures 8 x 10.25inches.
