there have been rumors and other threads in the past about this...all medevacs in nj have to call into REMCS through the njsp trunked system, some are dispatched primarily through it and some are dispatched by outside agencies.

i think the state has an over abundance of medical helo's to begin with. with that being said, i don't think northstar/southstar will be driven out of buiz. just my opinion for whatever's it's worth.
I disagree... Maryland has quite a few for an even smaller state.

As far as NJ, I think they are underutilized.

Florida.Where it's alway's friggin' hot.
i guess the demographics/useage actually determines if there are too few/many. it just seem's like everyones jumping into the medical helicopter game. as fas as being under utilized, i don't know about that. in time's past, they were getting called, and some patient's were basically walking to the helicopter.
they alway's seem busy over the air.

Anyway for what it is worth, A) close source tells me that Hackensack Medical Center is looking to purchase a helicopter and B? Just before Hurricane Irene all the private pulled there ships out of New Jersey until after the storm passed so I think it is safe to say the NJSP / JEMSTAR Medevac program is here to stay, THANK GOD !!

NYPD aviation also evacuated for that storm. I heard ATC working on that Saturday afternoon a flight of 6 Northbound up the Hudson working LaGuardia TCA. I believe they went to Stewart but can't confirm that destination. Since Floyd Bennett had a good chance of seeing the eye wall it made sense.

What is taking HackensackUMC so long to hire it's flight crew? I saw them still advertising for personnel back on December 12th. Also anything new on it's name or base location? I have heard 4 different locations mentioned a few months ago.
! Hackettstown
2 Sussex
3 Hackensack UMC North
4 Teterboro

I know Remsc does scene dispatchon but will Miccom use 155.175 for inter-facility? Or will they use the St. Claire's encrypted radios?
