GRISSOM AIR RESERVE BASE, Ind. -- William Ralstin and Lisa Stringer push a gurney towards a medevac helicopter during a training exercise held here June 10. The firefighters got a hands-on training experience that gave them experience in transporting and loading patients into a running medical transport helicopter. The firefighters practiced both "hot" and "cold" loads. A hot load is a term used to describe when a patient is loaded into a helicopter while the aircraft is still running. A cold load is a term used to describe loading a patient when the helicopter is shut down. Mr. Ralstin is a firefighter with the Grissom Fire Department and Mrs. Stringer is a nurse with a local emergency medical transport team. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Mark R. W. Orders-Woempner)
