    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Children’s Hospital Colorado getting new helicopter for young patients
Helicopter will be specially outfitted to care for kids

Children’s Hospital Colorado is getting a new helicopter outfitted specifically to meet the needs of child patients.

The helicopter, which is expected to take flight early next year, will be based exclusively at the hospital in Aurora and will have more interior space than other medical helicopters in order to accommodate an incubator for newborn patients. The nurses and therapists based aboard it will have special expertise in and equipment for treating children. The helicopter will be operated by Flight For Life Colorado, the critical-care transport service of Centura Health.

The specially equipped helicopter is a first in the region. It will cover a 120-mile service area that includes Colorado and several neighboring states.

“Children transported by specially trained teams, such as those at Children’s Colorado/Flight For Life Colorado, have improved outcomes and fewer complications,” Joe Darmofal, the director of flight team outreach and education at Children’s, said in a statement.
