By Major Mark Gibbons, MSP Aviation Commander

(Chesapeake Bay) On Sunday morning June 12th, Maryland State Police Aviation Command (MSPAC) received a request from the United States Coast Guard Section Baltimore to assist with the aerial evacuation of a male suffering from a medical emergency on board the motor vessel "Sea Brave". The vessel was anchored 2 miles south of the Bay Bridge in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay.

Due to the technical nature of this rescue, a Helicopter Emergency Aerial Tactics (HEAT) Team from the Anne Arundel County Fire Department was activated. After determining the most appropriate location on the vessel, 1 member of the HEAT Team was lowered by the crew of Trooper 1 onto deck of the Sea Brave. Once on board, the HEAT Team member assessed the patient and began packaging for aerial evacuation. A short time later, the patient was safely lifted off the vessel by the crew of Trooper 2 using the helicopter rescue hoist. The patient was flown to University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore.

The HEAT Team program is a unique partnership that joins local fire department technical rescue teams with the search and rescue capabilities of MSPAC's fleet of multi-mission aircraft. Through the years, the program has been called upon to assist with technical rescues throughout the state and has saved countless lives.
