PENDLETON — Around 50 students gathered on a practice field next to Pendleton High School to watch as a Chinook helicopter landed and Pendleton Fire Department firefighters and paramedics ran an emergency rescue simulation with Oregon Army National Guard troops.

Four classes watched the landing and live simulation Wednesday, May 15, at about 10 a.m., and students during later classes could tour the inside of the aircraft, talking to the guard troops as well as the firefighter/paramedics.
