Didn't understand why Lawrence medic and fire responded, doesn't Eudora have their own Emergency services? Also they called for the bird before medics even got to the scene to triage? I thought they only flew people that have head injuries? Guess the fire/medic read the artical about LMH not making the cut...

I was worried when I read the headline as I thought for sure that it was our very own "oneeye wilber" who picked a fight with his tree. I guessed that ole wilber had a drunken night at the outhouse, partied way too hard with his anna_undercover (know how you love free press Anna) and then topped his evenin off with some tar only to pass out and smack that ole tree. You crazy Eudorians! I am happy to know it was not him, and I wish the best for old Zeb (he could be wilber's kin though). Now wilber can put all of his time and energy back too his hotdog and its stand and trying to offer his advice to the city of Lawrence!!! Please be safe wilber, Lawrence needs you

Eudora does not have ambulance services. Ambulances are always dispatched from either Lawrence or Baldwin.

Head on crash into the tree, glad the tree didn't run into the back of him.

The helicopter is not only used for head injuries. And, in a motor vehicle crash, you could have a head injury. THey were thinking ahead. Wouldnt you want them to be prepared if you were in this situation? Even if you didnt end up needing to ride in the bird?

Correct, Eudora does not have an ambulance service but they do have medics and first responders that can triage and let ldcfm know if a bird is needed before they even arrive. I dont know on this call but im sure that this is the case.

Believe it's called the Lawrence/Douglas County Fire and Rescue. Could be that's why they serve Eudora?

The helicopter was called for by the first responding unit from Eudora Fire. That unit also made the mutual aid request for Eudora Township Fire department to set up the helicopter LZ. Dispatch automatically checks for available air units once the patient is triaged as critical by the police department which usually arrives first on scene.

Accidents like that they automatically dispatch 7 apparatus between Lawrence DOUGLAS COUNTY Fire Medical and Eudora City Fire. They then cancel what isn't needed once the true nature of the accident is known.

I'm glad there are so many experts on this website, what would we do without them?
