First responders from across Pike County attended an aircraft crash response class Monday at the Coal Run Volunteer Fire Department. Dwayne Osborne, a Prestonsburg firefighter and helicopter flight medic out of AirMedCare Network’s Prestonsburg base, conducted the class, giving instruction on how to safely respond to a crash or disaster involving a helicopter. About two dozen first responders from several departments took part in the class, which also featured a demonstration of how aircraft fuel burns and reacts to air and water.
