Air Evac Lifeteam earns safety award

Sunday, June 13, 2010

For the third consecutive year, Air Evac Lifeteam was awarded the Helicopter Association International (HAI) Operator Safety Award.

The HAI Operator Safety Award annually recognizes the safe operation of helicopters by its regular members. HAI provides the award to regular members whose safety statistics for the previous calendar year demonstrate a helicopter accident rate that is less than half the total of the average accident rate of HAI operating members.

"I want to congratulate each and every employee for the hard work and effort in ensuring the safety of our crewmembers and those entrusted to our care," Director of Safety Dave Hardin said.

"The fact that we received this recognition is a testament to the hard work and efforts of each and every employee of Air Evac Lifeteam."

In a letter from HAI President Matthew Zuccaro, he stated, "You can take great pride in the face that you have met the requirements for this award. Your achievement not only reflects favorably upon your organization but HAI members and the entire international helicopter community as well.

"Because of your efforts to reduce accident risk, the helicopter industry is better prepared to meet the challenges currently before us and those of the future," the letter continued.

"It is rewarding to see this award presented to Air Evac Lifeteam again in recognition of the safety culture and attention to detail of our teams," President and CEO Seth Myers said.

"Our safety program is a collaborative effort and we're honored to receive the recognition."

Air Evac Lifeteam operates 91 air ambulance bases in 14 states and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems.
