Place of event
Place of event is the site of the event leading to a sudden health threat, and the area on which its effects are extended (in accordance with the Act of 8 September 2006 on the State Emergency Medical Services).
During the daytime rescue missions carried out by the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS), the helicopter crew chooses for landing the closest spot to the place of event.
The minimum size of such place can’t be smaller than 2D x 2D (where D is the largest size of the helicopter with rotating rotors, for EC 135 helicopters 2D x 2D is 25m x 25m).
DURING THE DAY, THE PLACE OF EVENT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE SECURED BY THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.
LANDING SITE IS CHOSEN BY THE HELICOPTER CREW.
DON’T LOOK FOR A PLACE TO LAND!!!
CALL THE HELICOPTER!!!
