18-021 KSARNG Black Hawks receive additional firefighting missions

March 7, 2018 | By slarson

As wildfires continue to crop up across the state, two Kansas Army National Guard UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, which had been at work in Greenwood County, have been pulled back to Salina to prepare for a possible deployment to Hamilton County on the Colorado border. Two additional Black Hawks are currently in Wabaunsee County to assist firefighting operations near I-70 and Vera Road. The State Emergency Operations Center in Topeka remains staffed to assist local authorities, as needed, with their firefighting operations.
