Norrland region bought ambulance helicopters that can not stand snow

Published 7 December 2021 at 19.48

– We will save lives without risking lives. We have therefore decided that our ambulance helicopters should not fly when there is snowfall or snow smoke, or when the temperature is below five degrees and there is high humidity, such as mist or fog, says Henrik Johansson at the Swedish Air Ambulance, who flies the helicopters on behalf of region, in a press release.

The Norrbotten Region’s operations manager for the ambulance helicopters tells SVT that there is a collaboration agreement with other ambulance helicopter bases and with Finland and Norway if there are problems.

Airbus will now return to what measures are required for the helicopters to be able to fly as normal again.

– Unfortunately, we can not say when this will be resolved, says Henrik Johansson to SVT.

Correction: Since the 2018 election, the Norrbotten Region is no longer governed by the Social Democrats, as the article first claimed, but by C, M and the Norrbotten healthcare party.
