Safety Training: Are You Current?

Now is a great time to check your records to ensure that your personnel have had initial and recurrent helipad or landing zone training.

Each Member flight program is happy to assist you and your organization in providing training for your organization.  Training is designed for anyone who has the responsibility to set up and secure a landing zone (LZ) or ensure that a helipad is secure.

MNAMC Member programs recommend initial training for newly hired personnel, as well as annual recurrent training.

Contact your nearest flight program for additional details and see the NEMSPA Helipad Safety Video link on this page.

Planning a construction project?

Summer is construction season - We can use your help! 

If your health care facility has a helipad and is planning construction projects, be sure to inform your nearest flight program.

Loose construction materials and other obstructions (like cranes) can be a hazard.  All MNAMC Member programs report known hazards to each other so that our flight crews can conduct a safe flight. 

At times, we may need to divert to an alternate landing zone.  Planning in advance is essential to prevent delays in transport.

Contact your nearest flight program for additional assistance.
