Cordillera residents now have a new sense of security with the emergency services helipad located in the heart of the community at the intersection of Rio Cordillera and Cordillera Trace. The board of the Cordillera Ranch Shindig (CRS) presented the idea for the helipad in conjunction with the kickoff to Shindig 2015.
Others quickly joined with CRS in getting the emergency helipad idea off the ground!
“The intersection is central to the ranch community and offers plenty of room for helicopter landings,” says J.W. Pieper, Bergheim Volunteer Fire Department Treasurer and Cordillera resident.
“The helipad will save critical time in an emergency because it will reduce transport times from many areas of the community by at least 5 to 7 minutes,” says Hill. The current helicopter landing site is located at the Bergheim Volunteer Fire Department (BVFD).
“The helipad will greatly enhance the health and safety of Cordillera residents,” states Hill.
The CRS, Cordillera Ranch, and the BVFD are truly partners in creating this tremendous asset to the community. Cordillera has joined forces with the BVFD and three life flight organizations to ensure the helipad meets the requirements necessary for air ambulances.
The addition of this helipad is one of the many initiatives that the Shindig and Cordillera Ranch have worked together on to improve this community. Please visit www.cordilleraranchshindig.org to learn how you can support the 2015 Shindig and it’s beneficiary, the Bergheim Volunteer Fire Department.
