If you see a helicopter hovering over the Fermilab Fire Department Wednesday morning, don’t fret. It’s all according to plan.

The helicopter is part of a fire rescue demonstration, a highlight of Fermilab’s Daughters and Sons to Work Day, which takes place this Wednesday, June 20.

The DASTOW group photo will be taken promptly at 8:30 a.m. After a morning safety message and Mr. Freeze’s Cryogenics Show in Ramsey Auditorium, kids will board buses to watch the fire rescue demonstration, which starts at 10:45 a.m. The demo involves a simulated car accident in which a passenger is trapped and requires a medical airlift. Kids will be able to take a close look at the helicopter and a fire engine afterward.

After lunch in the Wilson Hall Atrium, kids will watch the FUNdamentals of Physics Show in Ramsey Auditorium, visit the bison, and finally return to Wilson Hall at 2:45 p.m.
