• WHEN: Thursday, May 4, 2023, 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.
  • WHERE: DOW Center for Health Professions, Oregon Tech, 3201 Campus Drive, Klamath Falls, OR 97601
  • WHAT: Oregon Tech students, faculty, and staff will participate in a multi-organization transport drill in conjunction with Klamath County Fire District 1 (KCFD1) and AirLink Critical Care Transport-Klamath Falls on Thursday, May 4, at 9 a.m. to gain hands-on emergency experience.
  •  HOW: Public spectators are discouraged as pedestrian traffic may interfere with helicopter arrival and departure. Helicopter landing is dependent upon weather and landing conditions at time of arrival.

Oregon Tech Respiratory Care students will begin the drill and assess the quality and nature of the “patient” and provide emergency care of “patient” while arranging for transport with KCFD1 ambulance. KCFD1 will provide ambulance coordination and be on the ground arranging for landing and helicopter transport operated by AirLink CCT.

The simulation will run approximately 1 hour from care, to ambulance transport, helicopter landing, and liftoff. The helicopter portion of the drill will occur at Lot O, which is the gravel lot east of the solar array.
