The Heroes of Christmas Day

  • Jan 7, 2016 1:34pm GMT

There are certain aspects of life that don't adhere to a calendar. One such task is the support and service of the Allegheny Health Network based out of Canonsburg, PA, operating this state of the art Airbus EC-145 helicopter dubbed LifeFlight 1.

Greg L. Davis shared with us these great photos as a reminder of the not just cool, but important ways we are served by those on-call while most were home with families during the recent holidays. The following gallery of photos was shot by aviation photojournalist Greg L. Davis on Christmas Day with an air medical provider using only his iPhone. Looking at some of the photos you will see the balance of life in the hands of the skilled crews. We hope you reflect on these important first responders, as we did, and continue on with a safe and successful year.
