There will be a test landing of a UMASS Life Flight helicopter on Tuesday, October 10 between 10am and 12pm on Phelps Field. The test is part of Nero's Law. Nero's Law lets first responders examine and transport working dogs injured in the line of duty. Transportation can happen by ambulance and with the test by helicopter. The UMASS Life Flight will be carrying a canine simulation model for drill. Once the helicopter lands, an ambulance will transport the model to the ECC at Foster Hospital. 

TUPD will be on scene during the test. Jumbo's Path will also be closed for a bit. 

[If the weather doesn't cooperate on Tuesday, October 10, the drill will be run on Wednesday, October 11]
