for rotor wing there is

Air Methods - doing business as (dba) - Life Net + Native Air + Tri State CareFlight

Reach AirMed LLC

PHI Air Medical LLC dba Air Evac Services

Med Trans dba Arizona LifeLine

Classic dba Classic Airmed / Lifeguard / AeroMed / Helo

Flagstaff Medical Center dba Guardian Air

Guardian Flight LLC dba Eagle Air Med + Gallup Med Flight + AeroCare + Sunrise Air - (all with different telephone numbers)

-------------

I wonder if Air Methods has 3 dispatch centers in Arizona - or is all dispatching done out of Omaha?

Does Guardian Flight have just 1 dispatch center?

The others probably have 1 dispatch center each.

So for starters we can assume there are 7 to 12 private dispatch centers for private rotor wing ambulances in Arizona. Once that is figured out, we can move on to figure out which radio channels are used by which dispatch centers.

For PHI, delete AE 05 and AE 09. both bases have closed. Move AE 06 to the Eloy Airport. The Comm Center is in Phoenix with redundant backups in Indiana, Kentucky, and Virginia. Arizona is all on VHF standalone analog repeaters for dispatching with satellite voice for flight following.

update on AeroCare

Aerocare Medical Transport | Contact Us - AeroCare shows a mailing address in Yuma but does not explicitly state whether any of their dispatchers are there in any weather

Aerocare Medical Transport | Service Area - AeroCare has 2 helos and 1 plane at Yuma

lets see if they show any radio license in Yuma

Yuma County, Arizona (AZ) Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference - PHI Air/Evac has a repeater at Telegaph Pass - does that count?

still checking still checking

Arizona - Medevac Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference - nothing on the statewide medevac page

still checking

Arizona Wireless Integrated Network System (Az Wins) Trunking System, AZ Statewide, Arizona - Scanner Frequencies - AZ Wins TRS shows a TG for Yuma County 'ICS Helos' - ???

-----------------

Checked all of the radio listings for Yuma County - nothing shows as AeroCare - possibilities are - AMR channels - satellite radios - "Million Air" on 452.3625R whoever that is - Yuma Rgnl Med Center channels - on a military TRS - on Mexico channels - ???

Come to think of it - is AMR part of AMGH? Is Guardian part of AMGH?

Checking notes to find - Guardian Flight is part of AMGH - and Global Medical Response Company apparently owns Guardian Flight

Further research reveals that Global Medical Response owns AMR + Rural Metro Fire + AEL + Reach Air Medical + Med Trans Corp + Air Med International + Guardian Flight - they have 38,000 employees - I wonder if they are thinking of creating 1 super dispatch center?

Home - there is a USA map here with all of the AMGH bases - in Arizona they presently show - GFL 219 at Yuma - GFL 005 at Winslow - GFL 019 at Kayenta - GFL 009 at Chinle - GFL 032 at Window Rock (Fort Defiance) - MTC 030 at Saint David - MTC 202 at Nogales - MTC 031 at Douglas - no indication of RW vs FW

Have not had much luck figuring out the dispatch centers for the medevacs. Saw one mention in 2015 that Native Air is dispatched from out of state.

Put together a list of the current medevac bases - Medevacs - Arizona Public Safety - feel free to post corrections
