Multiple aeromedical services were contacted, but each refused due to weather.

Special thanks to FF. A. Johnson from McKean 3 for assisting us on scene until Roulette EMS personnel arrived.

Respectfully,
J. Fillhart - Chief 46

They wouldn't fly due to weather? PFFFT. Guess you should find some Army pilots who aren't a bunch of wimps and worry about equipment over life. Shame on you. I don't pay your extremely high salary with my taxes to have you sit back and watch people die.

Maybe you should know what you’re talking about before you open your mouth. You don’t pay the pilot or for the helicopter with your taxes. It’s a service of the hospital and if it’s not safe to fly why endanger someone else’s life

Wow. You mad bruh? Using the F word is really becoming of you and shows your limited intelligence. The fact that they posted your harassing statement is baffling considering that it says any message harassing will be removed............Or was that too many big words for you wittle snowflake?

Ok enough of your petty bull crap. How is the patient ?

I assume that the F word is obscene, yet it’s allowed to be posted. I’ve had casual statements not posted at times. It’s strange how flexible the blog rules are.

Medical helicopters crash at twice the rate of other air taxis and are exponentially more dangerous than commercial airliners, according to a 2009 study by Ira Blumen, medical and program director of the University of Chicago Aeromedical Network. Air ambulances have crashed 264 times between 1972 and 2008, killing 264 people. The first three months of this year kicked off with two more fatal crashes, leaving six dead (half of whom died during a military EMS simulation).

In fact, working onboard a medical helicopter is the most dangerous profession in America, Blumen found, with a higher fatality rate than that of fishermen, loggers or steelworkers.

"Most people think medical helicopters are like airliners, that they all meet the same standards," says Thomas Judge, executive director of LifeFlight of Maine. "Yet here we take injured passengers, with no choice of carrier, and subject them to this huge variation of standards that airline passengers would not accept."

Have any of you ever flown a helicopter? Have any of you ever saved peoples lives on a daily basis. No? Shame on you. We need more people like them that do outstanding jobs. You people complaining have no idea how dangerous it is to even fly a helicopter, they are not like airplanes. I hope everything turns out okay.

Well a lot of the pilots have flown in the air force but these helicopters aren't built the same nor are they built like the coastguards. With that being said taking off and landings can be dangerous that's when most accidents happen they have to watch for power lines, trees, general public, fire, ems and every other thing below they don't have on board spotters only eyes on the ground adding rain, wind, fog, ice, snow.. ect can make for a very deadly situation not smart.
