REGION 6 MALHEUR HELIBASE

The Malheur Rappel Crew is stationed at the John Day, OR airport. Established in 1971, the John Day facility is now the national training center for all OAS/FS rappel training, in addition to a full Helitack/Rappel crew for firefighting.

The Interagency Helicopter Rappel Program embodies a highly specialized method of aerial delivery of wildland firefighters and allows us to move rappel resources between geographic areas. This allows us to provide an effortless exchange of any rappeller or group of rappellers, their equipment and helicopter with a minimum delay.

Rappelling provides for rapid deployment of personnel nationwide in areas with limited landing areas. Whether it be for fire suppression, medevac or any of the all-risk scenarios we may face in the future, R6/National Academy provides the best possible training to meet these demands and provide the services to which we have dedicated ourselves.
