New medical helipcopter landing zones in Va. considered

first_imgThe fire department has declined to release a full list of sites, citing safety and security reasons. JAMES CITY, Va. Time may be saved if the James City County Fire Department adds new landing zones. Medical evacuations, once a rarity in James City, have climbed over the past few years to about twice a month or more, Catlett said. Being able to give most pilots coordinates for a predetermined site to land when it’s available can save invaluable time, Catlett said. Ideal locations have no above-ground wires and as few trees and buildings as possible. Road access is necessary because fire engines are deployed along with the medical evacuation helicopters. And officials avoid flat areas with loose rocks that could be kicked up and damage the aircraft. All of those restrictions mean most sites are parking lots and school fields. But the district may add a few subdivisions’ private fields when the final decision is made this summer. In vast, rural James City, where the swelling population has led to an increase of ill and injured patients needing to be airlifted, fire department officials are working to expand their list of makeshift landing areas. There are currently nine such landing zones and James City County Fire Department is considering about four more sites, said Capt. Alton Catlett. Parking lots at the popular shopping hub Prime Outlets are notoriously packed, so any injured shopper is driven to a medical evacuation site on a field at nearby Lafayette High School. Busch Gardens, another place of high activity, is able to supply an overflow parking lot. The Kingsmill subdivision, which sits between the city of Williamsburg and the James River, is home to such a zone, although it’s labeled a “special site.” This means it’s not routinely used, Catlett said. “I could not imagine why they wouldn’t want this,” Sage said. Fields in at least two large residential developments — Stonehouse, in northern James City, and Governor’s Land, off Route 5 — are being considered for chopper landing zones. But what if a helicopter could land in a nearby lawn and whisk you away? A medical emergency at home often means waiting impatiently for an ambulance to squeal down your street and take you to the hospital. Jim Sage, a member of Stonehouse’s homeowners association board of directors, said he was optimistic for his subdivision to be approved for the site, but added the development’s 350 or so families should be asked their opinion as well.last_img read more

Gophers eye grand finals for varsity-eight

first_img“Everything we’ve done so far in preparation has been on target,” Cho said. “But what we’ve been working on now is execution, because we know we have what it takes, it’s all there, but can we put it all together on race day.”Minnesota had everything working for it last weekend, as it bested Boston University and Kansas at home on Lake Phalen.The Gophers won four of their five races last weekend, including the first varsity-eight’s five-second win over Boston. They topped Kansas by 13 seconds.The performance was good enough to earn Minnesota its second boat of the week honor.The Gophers’ first varsity-four began the season with Boat of the Week honors after beating Louisville.“I think we’re as confident as we’ve ever been,” Cho said. “We aren’t overconfident, but we know what we have to do and we know we’re capable of doing it.”Coach Wendy Davis said that confidence is something everyone else in the field has going for them as well, but what they don’t have, she said, is the comfort of their own beds.“The nice thing is that any other year we’d be heading for the airport right now,” Davis said. “So we have that advantage, we’re on our home course with hopefully a big home crowd.”But when Minnesota hosts Wisconsin, there’s as much red in the crowd as there is maroon.“We’re ranked ahead of Wisconsin, so our goal is to stay ahead of them,” Davis said. “Then we go after Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State.” Gophers eye grand finals for varsity-eightMinnesota hasn’t qualified for the grand finals in first varsity-eight since 2002. Matt PerkinsApril 28, 2006Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintMinnesota’s rowing team’s first varsity-eight haven’t qualified for the grand finals at the Big Ten Championships since 2002.Instead the Gophers’ top boat has taken first place in the petite finals each of the past three years.Last year Minnesota missed the grand finals by just more than a second, with Wisconsin edging them out.So as the 17th-ranked Gophers prepare to host the Big Ten Championships for the first time Saturday at Lake Phalen, first race set for 8 a.m., they have the grand finals in their sights.And again, Wisconsin is in their way.“Last year it was Wisconsin and us duking it out down to the wire,” first varsity-eight stroke Cheryl Wick said. “We were about a second short last year, and this year I think we’re more than a second better.”Wick said that when she and her teammates talked about goals and expectations for this weekend’s meet there was one common necessity – beat Wisconsin.“We need to beat Wisconsin,” Wick said. “The first race is the biggest, and we know we can beat them. I really think that the team this year is rowing better than we were last year at this time.”Second varsity-eight member Tina Cho echoed similar sentiments about her boat.Cho said that the second varsity-eight boat is as prepared as they’ll ever be, and now it all comes down to execution.last_img read more
