EMS (Emergency Medical Services)

What is EMS?

Helicopter emergency medical services (EMS) are vital cogs in critical-care emergencies where the life of a major trauma victim may be at stake.
Our flight crews, doctors and paramedics are trained to the highest standards to provide medical support up to intensive-care level. They rely on modern aircraft equipped with the latest medical support equipment.
Whether it's responding to a critical traffic accident or carrying out a vital medical transfer from one hospital to another, our EMS team has the skills and experience to perform efficiently, reliably and safely in any life-threatening situation.

Air medical services is a comprehensive term covering the use of air transportation, airplane or helicopter, to move patients to and from healthcare facilities and accident scenes. Personnel provide comprehensive prehospital and emergency and critical care to all types of patients during aeromedical evacuation or rescue operations aboard helicopter and propeller aircraft or jet aircraft.
