SC Guard Aquatic Training

U.S. Army National Guard Soldiers and South Carolina Task Force 1 (SC-TF1) Urban Search & Rescue firefighters with the South Carolina Helicopter Aquatic Team (SC-HART) program participate in a quarterly training event at the South Carolina Fire Academy (SCFA), Dec. 11-12, 2019 in Columbia, South Carolina. The event focused on currency training, skills development/refresh drills, and aircrew-rescue team integration on LUH-72 Lakota and UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters. Aircrews and rescue teams practiced survivor extraction from open spaces, rooftops (flat and high angle), windows, and rubble pile/confined areas, both in daylight and night conditions.
