A Boy Scout Eagle Service Project was completed in 2009 for an area of Southern Schuylkill County to map the air medical helicopter landing zones. The map booklet is available as PDF for download and use. The template for the project has been turned over to the Schuylkill County Fire Chiefs Association in the event that an individual or organization is interested in updating the project or extending the program to other areas of the county. Keep in mind that this information is now 10 years old and many changes have taken place within southern Schuylkill, in particular that addition of new high voltage transmission lines. Before taking this information for use, please insure you check each site to insure the information is still valid.
