Flight for Life moves to 24-hour, 7-day service


DENVER – Monday, Kathy Mayer, director of Flight For Life Colorado, announced that beginning Jan. 3, Flight For Life helicopter coverage from St. Anthony Summit Medical Center mountain base in Frisco will increase to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

“Currently, our helicopter, Lifeguard 2, is in service from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily with 24-hour emergency ground coverage via Flight For Life’s critical care ground ambulance. This change is necessary to meet the emergent health care needs of visitors and residents in the growing mountain communities,” Mayer said.

Flight For Life is a nonprofit, hospital-based, community service providing critical care transport for a nine state region with four helicopters, two fixed wing airplanes and three ground ambulances operating out of Denver, Frisco, Pueblo and Colorado Springs.

Flight For Life Colorado has transported more than 90,000 patients during its 36 years of operation. As the nation’s first medical air ambulance program, it has become the model for more than 300 air ambulance programs worldwide.
