"My community is in an out- rage over the short sentence," Fairbanks said in a letter to Feather Publishing. "Where is the justice in this case?"

This service will provide a critical link between hospi- tals and personnel that re- spond either to daily or large- scale medical emergencies. The website address is: naut/dataplates.html. "Until now, emergency re- Sponders had no single source of information for the loca- tions and capabilities of these heliports," said Acting Cal- trans Director Malcolm Dougherty. "This new web- site provides critical informa- tion at a time when every sec- ond counts." The website is intended to aid pilots who fly emergency medical services (EMS) heli- copters and helps first re- sponders by providing quick online access to state-permit- ted hospital heliports and the type of emergency services each hospital provides. "It's a great resource for any air medical organiza- tion," said John Mitchell, Redding Reach Air Medical Services base lead piloL "It reduces pilots' stress levels by familiarizing them with different hospitals' hell- pads and also gives a birds- eye view of each hospital's location and area. I have it marked as a favorite on my browser." The hospital heliport web- site was developed by Cal- -trans in cooperation with the EMS Authority, EMS opera- tors and other stakeholders• The result is an interactive state map that shows the lo- cations of hospital heliports. Emergency responders can "zoom" into county or re- gional views and select infor- mation about a particular heliport. Information includes geo- graphic coordinatesl trauma center level and the heliport's proximity to nearby cities and major roads. The site also provides aerial photographs authorized flight paths, and heliport data such as dimensions, lighting, ele- vation and helicopter size and weight limits. "Air ambulance services make it possible to transport the most severely injured and sickest patients from distant locations to medical centers that have the needed exper- tise," said Dr. Howard Backer, director of the EMS Authority. "Providing hospi- tal landing site information online ensures that air ambu- lance providers have ready access to accurate informa- tion on receiving facilities' landing sites to improve flight safety."
