Cool Day At The Fire Company

My dad is the president of a local volunteer fire company. Every year they put on a great safety program for our homeschool co-op. This year they had a Life Flight Helicopter come!

Everyone was able to get up close and see what it was like inside. The crew were so personable and answered the kids many questions.
Here is a look at the Fire Company crew and the Life Flight crew with most of the kids and moms who were there.



Thanks Dad and all the Kinzer Fire Company! What will you do next year to top this?

  5. The Life Flight helicopter is based out of Chester County near Brandywine hospital. They came for our group because Dad asked the Emergency Management Coordinator for that county. They like to do events like this, as chances are now that you will more likely be in some kind of vehicle accident than a fire - The firemen and paramedics say there is a "Golden Hour", which is the first hour after your accident, if they can get you to a hospital your chances of survival are great. After that hour your chances are greatly diminished. Many people in PA live rurally - the fire company we went to is 35 minutes to the nearest hospital. So the Life Flight helicopters are great for helping critical patients especially.

    Paula - the funny thing is that the fire company has a rig that used to be pulled by horses - their original piece of equipment!
