Event has passed

    PALERMO — Kaleb Brown, a Senior Patrol Leader of Palermo Troop 222, recently finished his Eagle Scout project by installing a helicopter pad for LifeFlight in Palermo.

    This is the only permanent concrete pad between Augusta, Waterville and Belfast, according to Brown, in a news release. This is a multi-community asset as the First Responders of Palermo, China, Somerville, and Liberty will have access to the pad.

    “I strongly believe that this project will directly save lives by reducing the time spent getting critically ill or injured patients to higher care,” said Brown.

    A public Ribbon Cutting ceremony will be held Saturday, Sept. 23, at 11 a.m. The pad is located at the ball fields at 645 Turner Ridge Rd, in Palermo. 

    There will be guest speakers, emergency vehicles, and LifeFlight will be on the pad.

    All are invited to attend. 

    “This project was a huge undertaking and required a myriad of volunteers, materials, and funds to be a success,” said Brown. “With generous donations by local businesses all $20K was covered.”
