In 1950, the US imperialists were about to intervene in the Indochina war, the resistance war moved to a new stage. In order to meet the needs of the resistance war, we must organize well political and military forces, logistical means, especially the blood vessels. Therefore, revolutionary activities at Hon Heo base became narrow, easily isolated and no longer suitable. In fact, from the end of 1949, road traffic to Hon Heo was often congested. Resupply by sea from Phu Yen is no longer safe. The province's forces are passive on food issues, greatly influencing the direction of the general movement, especially in the southern districts. In early 1951, the Provincial Party Committee sent a division to explore and survey the Da Ban area to build a revolutionary base.

By March 1951, all the agencies of the Provincial Party Committee, the Administrative Resistance Committee (UBKCHC), and the Provincial Army were stationed at Da Ban, building this place into the base of Khanh Hoa province and for both Bac Khanh districts.

The base is divided into 3 zones: North, Central and South. Each zone has government officials and mass organizations like a village, under the management and administration of the Bases Committee. All the youth and production camp campers were organized into guerrillas, armed with guns, grenades, bombs, mines, etc. to do the task of guarding against the enemy. The whole base has two mobile concentrated armed squads led by Mr. Tran Dinh Xuan, responsible for guarding the main roads leading to the base, organizing the information system, giving alarms by alarms every day. when there are planes, enemy infantry infiltrates the base. Protecting from afar there are guerrillas in peripheral areas, posts, observation posts of reconnaissance, military intelligence of districts and provinces.
