MULTIPLE PATIENT AIR MEDEVAC

When tragedy strikes abroad, occasionally we are left with numerous patients in need of transport to the same long-distance facility. First 2 Aid EMS has the ability to provide long-distance transport for up to 4 patients at one time. This service helps to offset the cost of multiple aircraft needed to fly the same route to transport the same number of patients.
