lzvid39.jpg (16622 bytes)Helicopters in the Carson Road, Woodleaf area on the 25th of March caused concern about what was going on.   What it was was a video production.  North Carolina Baptist Hospital's AirCare helicopter, crew, and flight nurses were updating the hospital's Landing Zone Safety video.  Actors for the event includedlzvid25.jpg (52067 bytes) members of Woodleaf Fire Department, Rowan EMS, Rowan County Rescue Squad, Rowan County Fire Marshal's Office and the Rowan County Sheriff's Office.

lzvid07.jpg (53674 bytes)Guy Maher, an AirCare pilot, also runs his own video production company from his home in Kannapolis and is producing the video as he did the first edition of the training tape which was coordinated by Flight Nurse Nancy Eubanks.  lzvid26.jpg (41288 bytes)

Copies of the tape for use in education with various emergency responders will be available, hopefully, this summer.  The videotaping was done both in daylight and at night to simulate all types of conditions, paying particular attention to avoiding powerlzvid43.jpg (28604 bytes) lines and other obstacles which frequently are present on accident scenes.  Rowan County Rescue Squad's light plant on Rescue-911 was put to good use illuminating the scene for the nighttime shots.

Medical first responders from Woodleaf Fire Department got lots of practice in lzvid30.jpg (58093 bytes)moving simulated patients back and forth to the helicopter for the taping, while EMS paramedics and AirCare Flight Nurses administered treatment.

Our thanks to all the emergency personnel who helped out with the video taping.
