Celebrating 30 Years of Service
In an emergency, every second counts. For 30 years, CareFlight Air and Mobile Services has been a leader in rapid transport and state-of-the-art emergency treatment. We proudly serve patients in a 17-county community, as an extension of a system that offers critical care. To our patients and families, it is our privilege to serve you. To our EMS partners in care, it is our honor to work alongside you.
CareFlight On the Road and On the Farm
On the Road is an outreach program developed by CareFlight Air and Mobile Services in conjunction with the Trauma Program at Miami Valley Hospital. The program travels to different counties to provide relevant education for EMS and pre-hospital care providers. Participants generally receive 6-8 continuing education hours related to a variety of trauma topics. In addition, a trauma surgeon from Miami Valley Hospital’s Level I Trauma Program leads a Trauma Case Review, which features actual trauma cases transported from the host county to Miami Valley Hospital to further enhance their educational experience.
On Saturday, August 2, CareFlight Air and Mobile Services will present “On The Farm In Butler County.” Through lecture, hands-on simulation and a panel discussion, this full day of farm trauma education will include how to manage farm accidents, the extrication tools required, and priorities of patient care.
