June 16, 2011: Chief Paul Zanelli of the Tewksbury First Aid and Rescue Squad invited the LTVFD to a MedEvac drill held at their station. Chief Zanelli grilled hamburgers, hotdogs, and bratwurst, and the squad's hospitality was enjoyed by everyone. Atlantic Air held a presentation for firefighters and EMTs, and anyone else who wanted to learn more about the "Air Ambulance." After the presentation, a MedEvac helicopter landed in their field, and everyone was allowed to get a closer look while the MedEvac crew members answered questions. Thanks Chief Zanelli and the Tewksbury First Aid and Rescue Squad!
