AirliftNW lands at Shorewood HS
Shoreline Fire conducted a training session with Airlift Northwest and Guardian One, coordinating helicopter landings for transport of accident victims to trauma centers. The designated landing area in Shoreline is the playing field at the south end of Shorewood High School, located at 175th and Fremont Ave N.

The fire department worked with Airlift Northwest for several days and with King County Sheriff's Guardian One helicopter.

Drills and training sessions such as these make sure that everything goes smoothly for an actual emergency, when every minute counts.  The sessions were held during the week of August 16 - 20.
