Classic Air Medical brought its rescue helicopter to the Los Alamos Nature Center early Wednesday evening as part of PEEC’s Summer Family Evenings program, sponsored by Del Norte Credit Union.
The state of the art medical helicopter touched down in the nature center parking lot at 2600 Canyon Road. Classic Air Medical invited community members to check out their helicopter and demonstrated to children how rescues happen in the wilderness.
“We are always happy to be involved in community events such as this one,” said Classic Air Medical Base Manager/Lead Pilot Geoff Rodgers. “It gives us the opportunity to share with the community what we do and the capabilities of the Classic Air Medical helicopter.”
Wednesday’s event was cut short when the Classic Air Medical crew was dispatched on a medical flight.
PEEC’s Summer Family Evenings have been going strong in 2015. Los Alamos families have listened to talks on wolves, rattlesnakes, baby goats and more at these Wednesday evening events.
