Multi Agency Medevac Training Hosted by Mastic FD & EMS

This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

On the morning of September 10th, about 50 first responders from multiple agencies (Mastic FD, Mastic Ambulance, Shirley Ambulance, Mastic Beach Ambulance and Brookhaven FD) went to the William Floyd High School for a special training co-hosted by Mastic FD and Mastic Ambulance on MedEvacs.

The Suffolk County Police Aviation Section, as well as Stony Brook Hospital came in one of the Suffolk Police Helicopters that is used for patient transports from various incidents. The medevac program staffing is supplied by both agencies. Suffolk Police Aviation Section officers are the pilot and Co Pilots while Stony Brook Medicine provides a Flight medic at a minimum, and on some occasions a flight Physician as well.

Items that they went over included choosing a landing zone, safety and loading procedures, and more. This was a great training as it helps to make sure all agencies are on the same page and keeps everyone refreshed on skills.
