The U.S Forest Service conducted a training exercise near Idaho City to ensure that crews are ready to respond in case of an emergency.

The focus from crews was how to maneuver the helicopter in case someone needs to be rescued from a densely forested area.

The training was conducted near Lyko Flat and the public was advised to keep away from the area but has since reopened.
