HELICOPTER SKID OPERATIONS Category: Training By Skills
Sometimes a quick response and a rapid insertion of medical personnel into an area can mean the difference between life or death. Many times, a suitable landing zone is either too far away from the scene or simple does not exist. You options are extremely limited, and time is running out for your victims. ARS has developed a unique and effective solution to this problem. Teaching the team to utilize the helicopter to its full capability opens new doors for safe and effective operations. The rescuer will be able to insert and extract themselves safely into environments previously thought to be unattainable by normal helicopter operational standards. This includes mountain, cliff, urban and water environments.
