NEW MEXICO - A Classic Air Medical helicopter visited Emergency Medical Services students at the University of New Mexico, Los Alamos, this past week.
Students toured the helicopter and got to ask questions of the flight crew. Several students expressed interest in pursuing air medical related careers, both on the medical and aviation side.
The medical helicopter was staffed by Pilot Ivan Kublis, Flight Nurse Merril Tydings and Flight Paramedic Ernest Abeyta.
The crew also taught UNM-LA EMS students about important communication for the ground rescue crew to provide to the incoming helicopter, transferring a patient from the ground to the helicopter, and how to shut down the helicopter in case of an emergency.
