    My Dad loved life and exploring new places. We are all very shocked by this news, but comforted that he was happy, enjoying life.

    The emergency response time doubles on the highway or maybe triples. An Air ambulance is well needed on the island. It may save your life reader. The paramedics already have personnel who can qualify for air ambulance service duty wings. The OH-6 is identified as the most feasible for the island.
