The description on the print states:
H-16 is a CHP Airbus H125 assigned to the Northern Division Air Operations Unit and based at Benton Field (085) in Redding, CA. The Northern Division operates two airplanes and two helicopters covering the 13 northern most California counties from the western coastlines to the Oregon and Nevada borders. The unit provides assistance with pursuits, suspect search, search and rescue, medevac, traffic enforcement, traffic congestion relief, stolen vehicle recoveries, and surveillance.
The aircraft is equipped with an NVG capable Garmin glass cockpit, Genesys Aerosystems HeliSAS two-axis autopilot system, FLIR 380-HDc camera, Trakkabeam A800 searchlight, Churchill Navigation system, and Flightcell DZM communications systems. In the rescue and medevac role, a hoist allows extrications from a maximum height of 150 feet above ground level. If medical intervention is required, the helicopter is staffed for Advanced Life Support missions and carries a defibrillator, heart monitor, and oxygen. (Illustrated by Eric Lian)
