Western Nebraska Observer - Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First

Kimball hosts first case review/training

Air Link of Regional West Medical Center landed at the Kimball Health Services North Campus for a landing zone training on Tuesday, Feb. 9.

Last Tuesday was a first for Kimball area emergency personnel when they witnessed Regional West Medical Center's Air Link helicopter land in the old West Elementary playground.

The helicopter landed in what is now the Kimball Health Services North Campus yard as part of a landing zone training, though nothing was wrong with the normal landing zone, according to Kimball Ambulance Service Director Carla Goranson.

The landing zone training was led by Air Link's Chief Flight Nurse Tracy Meyer, and stemmed from communication difficulties during a call just months ago on Interstate 80 near Dix.
