  • LA District, California Army National Guard to conduct flood-fighting demonstration Oct. 8 at Whittier Narrows Dam

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District and the California National Guard are partnering to conduct a Super Sand Bag Placement functional exercise at the Whittier Narrows Dam in Montebello, California. The exercise will include the use of a U.S. Army UH-60M Black Hawk helicopter flown by a crew with the California National Guard's Army Aviation Support Facility No. 1, based in Joint Forces Training Base, Los Alamitos, California. The California National Guard will conduct a sling-load operation that will place sandbags into a simulated breach of the levee system at Whittier Narrows Dam to demonstrate the joint flood-fighting capabilities of the Corps of the California National Guard.
