    A Med-Evac helicopter is desperately needed on our island to serve the outskirts of the two mile city limits which is a traffic conjestion area. Emergency responce time and trauma team response is critical to casualty care. Our Queen Elizebeth Hospital being the only emergency care unit on the island is catering to an international comunity due to our tourism market. We already have Medical tec trained paramedics on staff who can become crewmembers with certification unproblematic.
