2.7 Preventing Future Airborne Law Enforcement Accidents by Learning from Past HEMS Mistakes
In this activity, you will complete a case study on a civilian, private operator (commercial) HEMS accident. Pay special attention to the similarities of the mission(s) of airborne law enforcement and HEMS operators.
If the missions are similar, could an airborne law enforcement organization learn from the mistakes that caused a commercial HEMS accident? You will need to give a synopsis of the accident and then discuss ways that such an accident could be prevented in the future.
The case study must be at least 300 words (exclusive of your references). Brevity and moving straight to your key points will be key to this assignment.
There are many online resources to review to retrieve past accidents. A few of these resources include:
- Aviation Accident Database & Synopses/NTSB (Links to an external site.)
- Accident and Incident Data/FAA (Links to an external site.)
In Module 3, you will complete another case study of an airborne law enforcement accident.
