Crete Fire Department and Superior Air Med Illinois training

Today we did a training event with the
fire department guys and the cadets, teaching them how to land a helicopter
safely. The best thing to do for a patient that’s been in a serious
accident, is to get them to a trauma center. Usually from this area we can get
to a trauma center in about ten minutes. We do this now before they’re under
stress with a patient or on a scene of an accident, it gets them used to being
around the aircraft. If the helicopter has a problem, they have to come back and they have to land hard, or something happens, we’re taught how to get the pilot and
the nurses out and how to shut the fuel off. What’s good about that is we can get
the patient in the aircraft and get the patient to the hospital
quicker where they need to be.
