Helipad Scenario Testing

K-Block’s Helipad is a step closer to taking pressure off our road paramedics at a time when we need them most.

Training on Tuesday, 28 April and Wednesday, 29 April 2020 included a real-time, simulated transfer of a simulation mannequin from the helipad to the Department of Critical Care Medicine, for a COVID-19 positive case with Dr Paul Scott and intensive care flight paramedic, Danielle Fenton from Ambulance Tasmania.

Crews consisting of an Ambulance Tasmania intensive care flight paramedic and a specialist retrieval doctor, Tasmania Police officer and pilot have taken part in flights to prepare for the operationalisation of the helipad.
