Ketchikan, Alaska - The Ketchikan Volunteer Search and Rescue (KVSR) recently provided training to Guardian Flight medics and nurses which will increased local search and rescue response capability during weather that will not allow planes and helicopters to fly to outlying islands for medical transport.
The training provided by Jerry
Kiffer and four other members of the Ketchikan Volunteer Search
and Rescue to five Guardian Flight personnel will help to expand
the capabilities of a service making sure that the residents
and tourists in the area receive the best medical care if they
need it. Additionally, if air transport is not available,
transport can be done by sea.
Ketchikan Station Manager for
Guardian Flight Ed Fry said, "Thanks to Jerry Kiffer, his
well trained staff, and KVSR we feel very safe responding with
them in a medical need."
