Air Evac Lifeteam was established by a group of local citizens to provide air medical transportation and ensure access to emergency health care for their remote community of West Plains, Missouri (in the Ozark region). Although air ambulances were primarily based in metropolitan areas at the time, the company founders believed that the people who needed air medical transport the most were those living in rural areas, often far away from a hospital. That was in 1985.
Today, Air Evac is part of Global Medical Response (GMR), an industry-leading medical transportation company with both air and ground resources. Air Evac operates more than 150 helicopter air ambulance bases across 18 states.
9 Heroes have given their lives in the line of duty during the history of the Air Evac Lifeteam.
