Cheektowaga, NY (WBEN) - Mercy Flight is preparing for a big event Sunday, where they will invite the public to their hangar to check out helicopters and equipment up close and in person.

The free 'Open House' Kick Off the Summer event this Sunday will allow people to learn more about Mercy Flight and local EMS efforts.

"It's a big event for the families and for the kids," said Mercy Flight's Doug Baker. "It's even a bigger event than usual because we've joined with the airport fire department and made their facility and their equipment available to the public just as Mercy Flight's is."

The event runs this Sunday, July 22, from 1:00pm to 5:00pm at Mercy Flight Headquarters on 100 Amherst Villa Road in Cheektowaga.

"It's something special for the kids," Baker said. "It's just a fun thing, our way of giving back to the public for what they've done for us."
