The Washington state Department of Natural Resources will be acquiring their tenth helicopter. The agency began acquiring their military surplus UH-1H (B-205) ships in 1989.
Our helicopters and planes allow us to quickly get to #wildfires when they ignite. That’s why I was thrilled to talk to @KING5Seattle about the new #helicopter we’re adding to our fleet in 2020. This is a great addition as we look to be more effective at keeping fires small. pic.twitter.com/WzBgwQSRAX
