FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Officials are getting the training they need to keep you safe in case of an emergency.
The Arkansas National Guard’s 77th theater aviation brigade had a helicopter rescue training with Northwest Arkansas Task Force 1.
The training was designed to help provide air assets to the state for a response to natural and man-made disasters.
“An asset that we can use for response to catastrophic emergencies as well as an emergency of a single individual in Arkansas that needs to be rescued in a very remote location,” said John Luther, Washington County emergency management director.
The training was today at Lake Wedington in Fayetteville.
