Air 1 is the only Central New York helicopter that offers a multifunction aircraft that supports fire, police and EMS. The helicopter supports fire departments with its infrared camera and wilderness fire fighting abilities, law enforcement with aerial surveillance and rapid deployment of operational assets, and EMS with flight paramedics and flight physicians.
“Air 1 is a life saving resource that Central New York desperately needs. When minutes matter between life and death for a trauma victim a medevac helicopter may be their only option,” said Al Kalfass, executive director of WAVES.
Last year, more than 200 vehicles participated and raised more than $5,000 for Air 1.
