Texas EMS Air Provider Of The Year

Posted: Updated:
The Wichita Falls Air Evac Lifetime Base was honored on Monday as they were named the Texas EMS Air Provider of The Year!

The award was announced during the Annual Texas EMS Conference and this was the first time and Air Evac Lifeteam Base had won! 

The base was nominated by United regional Hospital, The Burkburnett Fire Department, and the Olney EMS.  All of them shared how the team saves lives while also serving as professional educators to the region.  They said the flight crew that responds to the scene of emergency, or provides transportation between hospitals, also provides CPR classes all the time for area fire departments.  They also explained that even when they can’t fly because of the weather, the crew often rides with ground crews.

A big congratulation to the Wichita Falls crew!
