A Black Hawk military helicopter will make a test landing at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center in San Luis Obispo Friday.
The hospital recently installed a helistop specifically designed to accommodate a Black Hawk.
In the event of a natural disaster the military will be able to do emergency transports of people or supplies to and from the hospital.
A helistop is a temporary landing site where the helicopter can land, load or unload a patient. If it were a helipad the helicopter would be able to remain on the landing site.
