Ketchikan, Alaska - As most have likely noticed, the paving of the new helicopter landing facility at Wolff Point in Ketchikan has been completed. The USCG District 17 worked for more than three years to establish a helicopter pad at an optimal location in Ketchikan.

Wolff Point - a former landfill that has been capped and graveled - is a scenic turnout that is located directly between the North Tongass Highway and the Tongass Narrows, approximately one mile north of the hospital.

The helicopter-landing pad's perimeter lighting will ensure the safety of the helicopter crew and passengers.
