Hello and Happy 4th of July to everyone! As some of you may have heard (since it made national news for several days), two medical transport helicopters collided near the hospital in Flagstaff last Sunday. One helicopter was part of the Guardian Medical Transport Services that is part of Flagstaff Medical Center (where I work) and the other was from Classic Lifeguard Aeromedical Services from Page, Arizona. Tragically, 6 people died in the collision and another person is still in critical condition. Guardian Air provides medical transport for injured people throughout northern Arizona including Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon and the Navajo and Hopi Reservations. As they passed through the parade today, in downtown Flagstaff, the crowd gave out a hardy cheer for this group who so recently lost several of their own.
