On July 19, 2018, the Hayward Police Department’s Special Response Unit had the opportunity, for the first time ever, to conduct training for helicopter rescue operations and marshalling at Meridian Hayward.
The unit was aided by a Coast Guard HH-65 Dolphin Eurocopter, specially designed for rescue operations, and a CHP (California Highway Patrol) A350 Eurocopter.
General Manager, Carlos Rodriguez, extended the invitation to return for any additional training the SRU may require: “It’s important to support the community and to give back, in any way we can, to those that protect it. We’re happy to have been able to help the Hayward Police Department and thank them for everything they do!”
Meridian is excited to have been able to assist the Hayward Police Department train for such a vital task and hopes to continue supporting the local communities surrounding all of our FBOs.
