Helipad Construction at LVFB Hall

With the support of our community and other local emergency resource agencies, the Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade has constructed a helipad with lighted windsock at LVFB Hall on Oak Narrows Road. The Brigade can now help expedite medical “hand-offs” in our rural area by providing a helicopter landing site. The helipad will be completed this fall, following harvest of timber surrounding the site.

The generosity of our community helped make our annual Memorial Weekend Pig Roast and Antique and Wooden Boat Show fundraisers a success, funding the construction of the helipad and the purchase a fire truck which now supports the Cook Volunteer Fire Department.
