Nursing Students Tour Helicopter
The Moberly Area Community College Practical Nursing class in Mexico met with the Survival Flight crew at the Audrain Medical Center helicopter pad on Thursday, July 17.
The Hannibal, MO based crew flew in to provide a tour of the helicopter and discussion about patient transport with the students. During the tour, Survival Flight team members demonstrated how to use a backboard to secure the patient in the helicopter.
