YOUR Reactions to Medical Helicopter Flyovers
Media outlets have reported Twinsburg residents are complaining about loud medical helicopters. That's not what we've heard
Earlier this week we asked you if medical helicopter flyovers bothered you, as some news outlets have reported.
Both in comments on Twinsburg Patch and over at our Facebook Page you told us how you really felt on the situation.
In a our poll asking if the choppers bothered you, 72 percent said that it didn't.
In a recent article, the Beacon reported that some residents are frustrated by the noise created by the helicopters, sometimes waking them up in the early morning hours.
Here's what your neighbors are saying about the issue:
Hayley Baskind said: "Let's hope that the ones that are complaining about it never need it. If they are in the air, they are in the air for a reason. They can fly over my house at any time of day. If it is up, someone is really sick."
Russ Terrill said: "Absolutely Not! I live less than a quarter mile from both facilities and have never been bothered. Even if I had been I certainly would not complain as they are saving someone's life. Next time it might be me or one of my family or friends!"
Judy Smith said: "For the ones who complain: 'Get over it'. If it were you or a loved one in that chopper, you would not be complaining! Be thankful that we have the ability to rescue and transport those in life or death situations. Just remember when you start complaining, it could be you up there!"
Marti Franks said: "It is the sound of salvation. I remember hearing them 27 years ago as they carried my son to Rainbow. I say a prayer of thanksgiving every time I hear them. A sound of life."
David Kimball said: "I hear it all the time and doesn't bother me because I know they are saving someone's life!"
Editor's Note: You may notice that there are no comments affirming residents' complaints. Why you may ask? Of all the responses we received, none were in agreement with helicopter complaints.
