“Air Ambulance Operations”

Yesterday I started to write about Life Flight operations due to some comments I’ve heard over the years. This morning I see Rob’s update and realize most of my post is covered very well in the blog. Having said that, there are still a couple of things worth pointing out or highlighting.

Our area is serviced by both LifeFlight Network and Air St. Luke’s. Both are good programs, and I would be hard pressed to find anything significant to use as an argument to use one or the other so I’m just going to list some bullet points regarding Air Ambulance operations:

So, those are just a few items to think about regarding air ambulance operations but like many things do not plan your survival around the ability to be flown out. Have a plan. If you are riding alone or in a very small group, make sure someone has a first aid kit. On a personal level I recommend having the following items on your body:
1.    Signal device
2.    Cutting device
3.    Fire starter
4.    Space blanket
5.    Whistle
