Poland Spring Contributes Funds for Kingfield Helipad Construction Project to Help Save Lives
Date:12/28/2009

KINGFIELD, Maine, Dec. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Poland Spring Water Company joined first responders and firefighters from Franklin County yesterday for the inaugural emergency training and helicopter landing at the recently constructed Kingfield helipad. Poland Spring donated $6,500 to the Fireman's Association of Franklin County and helped secure Tax Increment Financing (TIF) money to build and pave the helipad, now located behind the Kingfield Fire Station.

A two hour classroom and helicopter training was held yesterday at the new helipad with nearly two- dozen emergency responders from nearby Franklin County towns. The training was facilitated by a nurse and flight medic from LifeFlight of Maine Foundation, a non-profit organization that transports critically ill and injured patients to trauma units all around Maine. LifeFlight helicopters, flying at 165 miles per hour, will now be able to bring lifesaving equipment and critical care paramedics to the Kingfield helipad and transport critically injured patients within 20 minutes to trauma centers including Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston and Maine Medical Center in Portland.

Locating the helipad in Kingfield is important for area communities because, depending on where the call is from, it can be more centrally located than Carrabassett Valley's helipad. Previously, EMTs have had few options if a critically injured patient required a LifeFlight and would have to drive at least nine miles to Carrabassett. In other instances emergency responders have had to close roads in Kingfield to land a helicopter; or LifeFlights were forced to land on fields or a dirt strip behind the Kingfield Fire Station. These options compromised patient care because of lengthy travel times, nearby power lines, flying rock and debris, or poor landing surface conditions that meant transporting patients on gurneys over grass or dirt.
