Classic Air Medical will bring its rescue helicopter to the Los Alamos Nature Center, as part of the Pajarito Environmental Education Center’s Summer Family Evenings program, sponsored by Del Norte Credit Union. The helicopter will touch down at 6:45 p.m. today in the nature center parking lot.
PEEC’s Summer Family Evenings have been going strong, so far, with Los Alamos families enjoying wolves, rattlesnakes, baby goats and more at the Wednesday evening events. Today, the wildland firefighters were scheduled to bring their fire engine, but they’ve been called away to fight fires in other states. Classic Air Medical was happy to step in to show their helicopter and to let kids know how rescues happen in the wilderness.
For more than 26 years, Classic Air Medical has been providing air medical transport in the states of Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Oregon, New Mexico and Wyoming. They recently opened a new base in Los Alamos.
Summer Family Evenings are free for PEEC members, or $5 per family for non-members. No registration is required.
