  2. New Business 
  • Helipad Repair Update:  The helipad suffered some winter damage as notified by O’rnge; specifically one cone with AV70 lighting tumbled away from the initial position; other cones not properly secured into the ground – spikes uprooted or missing and one AV70 lights is damaged.  Vic Tremblay (one of the initial installers of the helipad) gave a quick summation of his inspection that the cones are not fastened and the helicopter requires these cones for visual cue to land.  A suggestion of sandbags be used to hold the cones into place.  Vic felt this was acceptable and will secure the cones with sandbags.  As well, a light has been requested from Dave Phillips (helipad support, O’rnge).  Once the light arrives, Vic will install and repair the helipad.
  • O’rnge confirmed we need to submit GPS coordinates on purposed sites to do an HFS for the areas.  This is for possible newly developed helipads.  Land locations will be scouted by Darren Auld (Fire Chief) and Vic Tremblay for new helipads.  A few suggested sites were discussed.  The LSB is thinking of 1 possibly 2 new helipad sites.  Darren Auld will provide an update as to progress on this.
