Arcata-Eureka Airport’s Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighters and Arcata Fire Department took part in a join rescue training with the Coast Guard yesterday. The mock training was to simulate a Dolphin helicopter after a hard landing with a three-person crew and two in need of medical attention. Arcata-Eureka Airport’s ARFF used a Oshkosh Striker, a truck designed for aircraft firefighting and rescue that has infrared cameras and piercing nozzle to reach the helicopter.

Soroptimist International of Humboldt Bay hosted its “High Heels For Healing” fundraiser at the Adorni Recreation Center last night.

From its website: The goal of this project is to raise awareness of women’s issues in a light-hearted and humorous way. The club invites prominent, local businessmen to walk in women’s high heel shoes—to raise funds to help women and girls in our community and beyond. To further address the awareness of women issues, local agencies that address domestic violence, physical health, and mental health have been invited to set up displays and provide additional resource information.  This event is held each year in April.
