Brown, MDOT helped Natchez
I read with interest recently of the large, twin-engine helicopters being used to transport patients rapidly from Natchez to other hospitals.
These machines have additional room for more life-saving resources and can fly during rougher weather. They are equipped to manage patients more efficiently while flying them to their destination.
I recall that the helipad that is being used was constructed in Natchez a few years ago. It was funded by the Mississippi Department of Transportation when Natchez’s own, Butch Brown, was at the helm. This landing area can accommodate all present-day MedEvac helicopters with a space that is much safer for patients and personnel. It is a terrific asset for our community.
Butch and MDOT did many great things for Natchez during his watch that carry on even today
Thanks Butch. Get well soon.
