Go inside or back away from the helicopter as far as possible or at least 50 meters. That’s half the length of a football field. No one should ever stand closer than 50 meters to the helicopter. Always maintain a safe distance to avoid any flying debris. Hold children and animals to keep them away!
Stay back from the helicopter at least 50 meters and also keep back children, animals and other people. The helicopter cannot land until everyone is a safe distance from the landing area.
Only come close to the helicopter if the pilot speaks to you directly and tells you it is safe to do so. Always listen to what the pilot or crew is saying and follow their directions. Never approach a helicopter when the engine is on.
Haiti Air Ambulance call center/dispatch receives calls 24/7. However due to legal and technical limitations, Haiti Air Ambulance can only fly during daylight times for now.
