Lifeguard Helicopter

Lifeguard is a medically equipped helicopter transporting critically ill, injured or unaccessible patients requiring immediate acute care. Lifeguard is staffed by paramedics from Colonie EMS & NYS Police. The paramedics are trained for rappelling and the helicopter has the in air ability to allow a medic rappel into the deep woods to evacuate patient with a litter up in the air and to a nearby landing zone. Lifeguard can do short hauls for water rescue and is equipped with a FLIR unit (Forward Looking Infrared) which is useful for searches to find body heat, and heat sources.* On 4/10/1999 Lifeguard with its FLIR unit was one of the special teams used to help the Coeymans Hollow Fire Company and Albany county sheriffs find a lost boy.
