Two of the Ketchikan based Critical-Care Flight Nurses, Michele
Faust and Rachel Welk, spent an hour with the girls from Camp
Featherwinds. Michele and Rachel discussed the flight environment,
what it is like to help sick people while flying in a Lear Jet
or on a helicopter; and provided some of their supplies to demonstrate
bandaging and dressing wounds.
The flight nurses also discussed
safety at home, such as ensuring that the girls always wore helmets
and safety pads while riding bicycles or playing sports. Also
discussed was home fire safety, the importance of a home smoke
detectors, and fire extinguishers.
