Thursday, Jan. 15, 2015 — As Megan Mullowney was headed for her new position with the Lassen National Forest, she never imagined she’d soon have another opportunity to follow one of her life’s passions. But just weeks after transferring from the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit to the Lassen, the Almanor Ranger District resource officer was on her way to Pasadena to help support the U.S. Forest Service‘s participation in the 2015 Rose Parade.

As part of a year-long series of events and festivals celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act of 1964, the forest service showcased a traditional skills entry, consisting of three mule pack strings, rangers, firefighters and volunteers, at the 126th Rose Parade on January 1.

Supes to consider change to EMS plan

Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2015 — Representatives from Mountain Life Flight have requested several paragraphs be removed from the Emergency Medical Services Transportation Plan, because they said it is not beneficial to local residents.

According to Keith Crosby, general manager of Mountain Life Flight, if the paragraphs remain, the company will no longer be able to use its own ambulance to transport its flight crew — a paramedic and a registered nurse — to and from the hospital.

Mountain Life Flight currently has an ambulance located 40 feet outside its hangar door. When the crew is called out for a fixed wing transfer, they get into the ambulance, drive to the hospital, pick up the patient and then drive back to the airport, according to Crosby.
