The Guam Army National Guard Detachment 2, 1-224 Aviation Regiment will be conducting annual training from June 6 – 11, 2018.
The unit will conduct touch-and-go landings, which involve landing on a helicopter landing zone and taking off again without coming to a full stop. The unit will also conduct live patient hoist training. The training will be conducted throughout the island at various sports fields to include the Malesso Baseball Field, Yigo Baseball Field, Eagles Field, and Adelup.
Training will conclude with a simulated downed aircraft to exercise the unit’s Pre-Accident Plan and the Guam Homeland Security/Office of Civil Defense’s (GHS/OCD) Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan.
We remind the community that the training is not part of a real emergency and that all precautionary measures were taken into consideration, for the safety of the participants and the public.
