Dirt bike accident on Sunday, around 11:00a.m. a young individual was going over the jump at the Rockpile and things didn't go as he had planned. Lucerne Valley paramedics arrived at the scene, and the patient was airlifted to the hospital. I'm not sure about his injures.
Nearly anytime County 111 is called out to Lucerne/Johnson Valley they will call in an airship per San Bernardino protocol ..... if you are an EMT, Fireman, Paramedic or have your first aid/cpr cert and want to help check out Rescue 3's website at www.rescuethree.com or come on out. You'll find me in the CP.
Reminder to get a SPOT device, then the transport's covered.
FYI, if your medical insurance provider (Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Kaiser) etc covers ambulance rides they will cover an airship. I deal with this all the time as part of Rescue 3. I don't know anyone who has had their charge denied. You will have to pay your deductable. An airship is simply an air ambulance. Just remember, when your talking to your insurance guy....you fell off the roof.
