Services: Fire - Medevac Support

Car Fire

One of the ways we work most closely with our squad is establishing a landing zone, or LZ, for a Medevac.

One of the services primary tools in meeting a trauma patient’s “Golden Hour” is to utilize a Medevac to transport the patient to an applicable trauma center.

While medical personnel are making their initial attempts to stabilize a patient and ready them for transport, the firematics personnel are establishing a landing zone. This is a 100’x100’ square on flat terrain removed as far as possible from overhead hazards.
