Air medical transport provider LifeMed Alaska announces service in Petersburg
"We get a lot of communities asking us for coverage," says Jared Sherman, Chief Financial Officer of LifeMed, "We arrive once we are confident we have all of the resources in place to provide the best possible service. We are ready for Petersburg."
LifeMed provides transports for adult, pediatric, neonate, and high-risk obstetric patients using a fleet of Learjets, turboprops, and helicopters. Their medical crew members are all advanced flight certified and must complete rigorous ongoing medical training. Petersburg will be served by a Learjet and a combination of flight nurses and paramedics.
In tandem with the Petersburg announcement, LifeMed is launching a campaign of appreciation for Alaskan first responders--"Heroes of the Last Frontier." In addition to selecting a winner from among Statewide first responder nominees, LifeMed will single out a first responder nominee from Petersburg to recognize. Prizes include Visa gift cards for the winners, a cash donation to their organizations, and money for a work party hosted by LifeMed. Nominate an Alaskan first responder!
