Our team consists of an outstanding group of nurses, physicians, medics, flight communications specialists, pilots, mechanics and support personnel. Thanks to this impressive group of dedicated team members as well as our referring institutions and EMS partners, we are proud of our successful 31-year history and look forward to many more years serving our community.
Our flight crews include a registered nurse, a paramedic and a pilot who respond to life-threatening emergencies including trauma, medical, or obstetrical. Crews respond to an emergency scene, where a ground unit assists the crew, or to a hospital to transfer a critically ill patient. Life Line is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems.
