Default medevac

anyone been air lifted after a wreck or some bad accident. I will tell you it is a rush when you are the practice patient. I was the patient and they had to go "rescue" me out of a car that was staged up. I also got to see how all the rescue tools worked. I am hoping to get pics on monday if I do I will post some. how many ppl can say they get paid to be a training aid and fly in helicopters

Where do I sign up?


If I wreck my car, can I get paid for the same thing? I'll let them practice on me.

I'm guessing the place under the picture that says "location". I've been wrong before though. Oh, you meant company.... dur!

ok the here is the unit I work for which is a medevac unit. They are the ones that go in and grab the patiants that have been hurt over seas and her in the states too. They even helped with Katrina and also if a hiker or someone get stranded in the mountains they can be called in too. Sorry to say it is a military training thng only not a civilian training thing
