On April 21st I had the amazing opportunity to visit the local Calstar station In Gilroy, CA. This awesome crew decided that a station visit didn't quite cut it to show the full nature of their job. They walked me through all the safety procedures and safety gear that they deal with on a daily basis. After that we got buckled in and took off. They showed me their procedures for taking off, landing, patient transports and more. With an ability to cover up to 150 miles in one way in any direction, they cover a very large area. Calstar works closely with local fire departments to create safe landing zones and patient care. Keep an eye out in the sky for the orange and blue.
