Safety is at the root of everything LifeFlight Eagle does. From our safety culture that permeates every level of the organization to our robust safety management system, specialized equipment, extensive crew training, industry-leading Safety Symposium, and outreach education for hospitals and first responders, LifeFlight Eagle invests heavily to ensure every flight is completed safely and that every patient arrives safely to the care they need.
LifeFlight Eagle is fortunate to employ the best of the best. Our highly trained, highly experienced flight nurses and flight paramedics provide compassionate critical care to patients on the worst days of their lives. Through ongoing education, simulations, drills, and training, our medical crews are ready for any situation.
Our medical teams are supported by highly experienced pilots who are required to have far more experience than the industry average, and NAACS-certified communications specialists, who coordinate flight requests, manage communications and monitor safety. Altogether, our team is second to none.
LifeFlight Eagle engages continually with referring fire and EMS agencies and hospitals, as well as receiving hospitals to evaluate and improve the quality of care that we together provide patients. We engage our customers through ongoing outreach, quality assurance efforts, and outreach education courses.
As the only non-profit helicopter ambulance program in Western and Central Missouri, LifeFlight Eagle doesn’t report to stockholders and Wall Street investors–we report to you. LifeFlight Eagle is committed to stability and sustainability in our operations. As other for-profit companies quickly set up, then close operations, LifeFlight Eagle takes a carefully measured approach geared to providing the community with quality critical care transport for years to come. Through fiscal responsibility and continual evaluation of the needs of the communities we serve, we are committed to being here for you and your family, and committed to safely delivering every patient to the care they need every time.
LifeFlight Eagle reinvests in the communities we serve in many different ways, including helping to improve the quality of care available in each community. LifeFlight Eagle partners with local fire departments, EMS agencies and hospitals to offer continuing education courses to their staffs that both help them maintain their certifications, and introduce new life-saving techniques and methods. We also partner to conduct numerous mock drills each year that give us all the opportunity to practice critical skills and then learn from the debrief how we can collectively improve.
We also engage in numerous community education events, from docudramas that discourage teenagers from distracted and impaired driving to community health fairs and community service projects.
LifeFlight Eagle is more than an air-ambulance company. We’re a non-profit community partner that is here for the community and here to stay.
