Help on the Way

Hopefully you’ll never need the services of a med-evac helicopter like the one pictured below.

helilifeaThis is one operated by PENNSTAR, affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania Hospital. I’ve seen these helicopters in action. It’s impressive. The pilot’s fly in all kinds of weather and have to land at the sites of car wrecks, train derailments, even other plane crashes. This is difficult duty to say the least. Then there is the pressure of flying with someone’s life in danger, which adds more pressure to an already stressful task.

So, my thanks go out to the pilots, nurses, and staff of this system. Hopefully, I’ll never see the inside of one of those helicopters. But you never know.
