Sunrise Ridge helipad

Sunrise Ridge Helipad

The helipad on Sunrise Ridge serves as the major Island location for immediate helicopter evacuation of patients. The elevation of the land, central location, and open area make it ideal for emergency access. Recently, Granny’s Attic membership approved a grant to begin improvements for FAA requirements and safety, including installation of a weather station and a lighting system. Work begins in the spring of 2015, and repaving of the landing area will be completed when more funds have been raised.
