Sight at night

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

Members from local emergency response agencies attended night-goggle vision training sessions conducted by Air Evac at the St. Vincent Clay Hospital annex building Monday, and Dec. 7. Instructor Tim Jenkins, with assistance from Air Evac Flight Nurse Lori Mayle, showed the class how to properly wear the new helmets with the night vision equipment attached. The equipment, which is part of a new safety initiative by the company, will allow pilots and crew members of the air ambulance service to have "daylight vision" while working at night. Air Evac officials confirmed that the Brazil and Paoli, Ind., bases are the first in the state to initiate use of the equipment. More good news is on the way for the company in the new year, as a new helicopter will arrive at the base in January. Ivy Jacobs Photo.
