Landing Zone Flat area clear of obstructions Daytime: 60 feet x 60 feet Nighttime: 100 feet x 100 feet At least 50 yards from rescue scene to minimize rotor wash effects Remove loose debris; Wet down area with water fog to minimize dust
Landing Zone On divided highways, stop all traffic in both directions Warn crew of locations of power lines, poles, antennas, trees Mark each corner of LZ; put a 5 th device on the upwind side NEVER point any kind of light at a helicopter on approach at night
Landing Zone Move bystanders back at least 200 feet Keep emergency personnel 100 feet away during landing No smoking within 50 feet of aircraft
