Be sure to check out our Landing Zone Safety course. If you need instructions to help you navigate the training, click here.
This educational module features video and photographs from on-scene landings and provides the information you need to keep yourself, the patient and the Northwest MedStar crew safe. The course includes detailed information on NW MedStar’s helicopters, indications for air transport, choosing, setting up and marking a safe landing zone, communicating with the pilot, assisting with loading and what to do in case of a hard landing. Using interactive slides you practice identifying the potential hazards at a scene and learn how to direct the helicopter to your location. There are review questions to answer in each section and an exam at the end. You can print out your final exam score to show proof of completion to your training officer and email NW MedStar your results. This way, we can send you a certificate of completion by email.
This new on-line course will help ensure that all ground EMS providers have access to valuable safety training, even if they are unable to attend one of NW MedStar’s helicopter safety classes in person.
