Medical Helicopters are staffed with experienced flight nurses and paramedics, flying at the ALS level. Hopefully they don't fly BLS pts very often.cstockmyer said:Are the coppers all ALS? Or is there one certain one they send to thoes? Or am I way off and they don't put one of standby if it's not an ALS case?
cstockmyer said:I was just curious if there was one chopper that was just ALS or if they all are. I have family in grand lake, they often talk about someone who was taken from there to Denver via chopper, I just thought it was easier and faster then going via bus for BLS people.
If you're willing to pay thousands of dollars for your BLS transport I'm sure the helicopter services would be happy to help.
By the way, why do Flight for life and Air life have buses?
Just another name for ambulances, started in NYC I believe all the ambs there are called busses, the FFL & AL busses are actually CCT Critical Care Transport units and basically offer the services of a helicopter on wheels especially helpful for bad weather conds like L/G 2 (Frisco) especially faces more that 50% of the time in the winter months.
