Air Ambulance Lands at Meshoppen Ball Field for Transport


Members of the Meshoppen Fire Company were involved with the arrival of a Commonwealth Health air ambulance at about 7 pm this evening, attracting a fair number of spectators (above). The helicopter landed in the borough’s ball field once, and crew members on board removed a stretch that was moved to a pair of vehicles waiting near the pavilion. The helicopter took off, circled town and landed again a few minutes later, at which time four firefighters pushed the gurney to the rear of the aircraft (top) that was loaded quickly before the helicopter departed, traveling east.

About Author

Managing Editor of, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
