Helicopter Scene Safety with Joseph Uridil
Helicopters are a great tool to have available when someone needs to be pulled out of a remote canyon – or transported to a level 1 trauma center in a hurry. They’re unbeatable at those missions. I know—I flew helicopters for a while, back in the early 2000s and I hold a commercial pilot – helicopter certificate. But they also pose a danger to ground crews. Get complacent and you could have a very bad day. In Arizona, we’ve had DPS troopers killed by helicopter tail rotors and even a main rotor strike. Back again to give us a safety refresher is our favorite medical helicopter expert, Joseph Uridil. He’s a Air Methods clinical base supervisor for Native Air in Arizona.He is also, coincidentally, just back from recurrent scene-safety training for helicopter operations.
