San Juan County is looking to build two new helicopter landing zones for AirCare, which is San Juan Regional Medical Center’s helicopter service.

The county has identified two plots of land where a helicopter landing pads can built near Navajo Dam and Nageezi.

County Executive Officer Kim Carpenter said the county is awaiting state approval to build roads that lead to the landing pads.

The landing pads will allow ambulances to rendezvous with the hospital’s helicopter faster.
