Landing zone training takes place in Harvard

Article Image Alt Text
For three hours Sunday, Sept. 18, members of the Harvard Fire and Rescue squads listened as Josh Marshall taught them about landing training, and all of the various components that go along with it. Marshall, with LifeTeam out of Hastings, said that when there’s an emergency bad enough that it warrants a medical helicopter, there are a number of protocols fire and rescue need to follow prior to the helicopter arriving. In Harvard’s district, it takes roughly 12 minutes, give or take, for the helicopter to go from Mary Lanning to the emergency location.
