  1. We have had 2 (two) EMS helicopters land on log lake road this past week but haven’t seen anything about either here?


  2. Information about one of the EMS helicopter missions was shared on the Holt Enterprise News Facebook page from the Holt Fire District FB page. The HIPPA law prevents details about patients and their conditions without prior consent and without details, the story wold have been, “An EMS helicopter landed at the Log Lake Road airport to transport an unconscious Holt resident to the hospital (in this case the FWB Medical Center). But thanks for reading and taking the time to comment.
