Malheur (Heli-) Rappel Crew

It has been awhile since I wrote about or shared videos about heli-rappeling. According to the National Wildfire Coordinating Group's Glossary of Wildland Fire Terminology (scroll down to "rappelling"), (heli-)rappelling is the
Technique of landing specifically trained and certified firefighters from hovering helicopters; involves sliding down ropes with the aid of friction-producing devices.  
In the video that I embed below from Feener Productions, you will see the Malheur Rappel Crew in action.
