"The Summit at Summit"

What is the one common obstacle in any major incident?  


ECHO has teamed up with Summit Aviation in Middletown, Delaware for what we are calling the Summit at Summit!

The Summit at Summit will provide training and networking opportunities like nothing else in public safety aviation. We aim to bring HEMS, Law Enforcement, SAR, Military, and vendors together in one place. meeting your aviation neighbors, networking, understanding their equipment and mission profile has never been easier & we believe will make everyone’s operation safer & more effective.

 The Summit at Summit is the place to meet with other aviation programs (including military assets) as never coordinated before.  With public safety aviation as a whole being called upon during major events / natural disasters it just makes sense to gather these aviation programs together to network, pre plan, talk about equipment, discuss past responses, etc.
