Flames call for additional ambulance helicopter video

The Calgary Flames say they want to see additional ambulance video of the team’s emergency response to the deadly avalanche on Mount Polley.

“There’s a lot of footage that is available, we’d like to see it in a better format and with better clarity,” Flames general manager Brad Treliving said on Tuesday.

“We’re always looking for ways to improve.

We’re trying to find ways to add to that footage and to be better, and hopefully that’s going to happen with this video.”

In the video released Tuesday, a paramedic can be seen on the scene of the avalanche in which three people were killed.

The Flames said they have requested the footage be released as part of a review of the incident.

“We’re going to look at the video and if we have any information that might help us, then we’ll make sure we have that as well,” Flames forward Max Domi said Tuesday.

“Obviously, we’ll look at it in the context of our safety and how we’re handling the team and our safety on the ice.

We have to take care of ourselves and our players.

So I think we’re going through the right steps, we’re just trying to get it done.

Hopefully it’s going in the right direction.”

Treliving was in Calgary Tuesday to attend a game against the Edmonton Oilers.
