Vanderbilt LifeFlight has changed its flight crew helmets to mirror those worn by Vanderbilt University football players.
LifeFlight crew memberâ€™s helmets provide safety, hearing protection, and are also part of the communication system onboard the helicopter. Previous helmets were solid white. The new helmets are designed with Vanderbilt gold, a white stripe down the middle, and the Vanderbilt Athletic â€œstarâ€ on each side.
â€œThe helmets undergo a refurbishment process and it was time for that process,â€ said Jeanne Yeatman, R.N., EMT, director of LifeFlight. â€œIn keeping with our alignment with Vanderbilt and our association with our Event Medicine team providing emergency care to the team, we felt like this would be great synergy.â€
