Careflight is relatively new to town - based out of Southern Hills Hospital in the SW. They have Southern Nevada divided into first in districts for each helo/company.

I've only seen Mercy Air at hospitals, never seen Careflight.

FYI Careflight has been the primary air transport provider in northern Nevada since the 1980s.

careflight and mercy air

There are 2 Careflights: one out of northern Nevada, the other "tri-State" Carefilght, is HQed out of Bullhead City and has helos all along the river . Careflight nevada is based out of Reno. If the bird is RED and White =Tri-state careflight, BLUE and White=Careflight Reno.

Sounds like Tri-state careflight has the base in Vegas from the search I did.

Mercy Air is a subsidiary of Air Methods, the largest HEMS provider in the US

As for scanning, Tri-state uses Sat phones but carries Wulfsburg Radios no dispatch frequency.

Air mehods does not have a dispatch frequency as far as I know, however they are on a vhf am frequency in cailfornia on 131. something.....

As they are used for long haul transports in the area of 150mi or less check CCFD ch 7 and 8

Thanks for that interesting update, I didn't know there were two companies using that name operating in the same state.
