Mercy Flight is leaving its mark across Western New York.
Over 300 signs proclaiming “Mercy Flight was here” have been placed in Genesee County.
Jeffrey Mendola is Mercy Flight’s Director of Development:
“I think what we’re trying to instill is once they drive by and see there’s a sign and another sign, and holy cow there’s another sign. Maybe people will begin to think; I might need Mercy Flight someday if that many people living, working and traveling where I’ve been need it, so maybe I’ll go to the website and learn a little more about Mercy Flight,”
He says the signs indicate the exact location where a helicopter has landed for a rescue.
Mendola says a total of 2,000 signs have been placed across Western New York but that only represents a portion of the calls they’ve responded to over the past 12-years.
Mercy Flight is a non-profit organization.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed a bill targeting telemarketers. Under the new law, telemarketers will be banned from using prerecorded messages.
Automated "robo calls" for political campaigns are exempt from the new law, with the governor saying they fall under a federal guideline and can't be banned by the state.
The new law also requires telemarketers to offer residents the option to be placed on the "do-not-call" list…if you can get a word in.
