Airlift Northwest lands in Eastsound | Slide show

Islanders gathered on the Village Green today to learn more about Airlift Northwest.

The event provided an opportunity for guests to learn about the transport service’s work as the only critical care transport agency with two critical nurses serving the San Juan Islands communities.

They also had a chance to check out the cockpit of an Airlift helicopter, watch rescue simulations by local fire departments, talk with Airlift crew, and more. Community members of the AirCare program, which guarantees full insurance coverage for the costs of transport services, were also in attendance.
