The National Airborne Service Corps under the Ministry of the Interior assigned the first branch of the First Brigade stationed at the Taipei Songshan Airport to support the 2017 second echelon three-dimensional disaster relief integrated training of the Fire Department of the Taipei City Government at the Dajia Riverside Park along Keelung River on May 5 and July 21.

The helicopter crew and members of the special rescue team joined fire department personnel to conduct the training, to reinforce rescue technologies and concept especially in relief operations in special geographic locations and confined spaces.

The flight instructor briefed on preparations for air rescue and precautions on ground and on the water, and the crew chief gave an introduction to various equipment for rescue operations on land and on the water.

The briefing was composed of three parts. The first part was an exposition of helicopter safety and application of equipment, which detailed preparations and precautions of the rescue team upon receiving an emergency assignment. The second part was the static explanation regarding climbing and descending, movements in and out of the cabin and how to operate ropes and lanyard loops. The third part was the training of lifting, keeping the helicopter at the height 50 feet above the ground and having the trainees equipped with hanging lanyards, ropes, gloves, portable tools, hook rings, and a back pack to practice hanging and lifting.
