You probably expect that l.jpg

  • Your own personnel can plan and direct an evacuation

  • Local EMS capabilities will be there to help your patients

  • FEMA will rescue you

The reality is that l.jpg
The Reality is That:

  • Many facility personnel are unavailable or unable to handle the stress

  • Local EMS is inundated with emergency calls

  • State resources are spread too thinly throughout the region

  • FEMA’s priority is NOT to your hospital or your most critical patients

A testimonial l.jpg
A Testimonial:

“One of the most essential components of our plan involves evacuating patients out of the region, and we've partnered successfully with U.S. Air Ambulance’s HELP program for more than two years.

“The benefit of this relationship is that it allows Ochsner to focus on preparing its facilities and staff who are in imminent danger, while U.S. Air Ambulance handles the logistical details of relocation; including contracting with transportation providers and facilitating MOUs with receiving hospitals.  

“We've been so impressed with U.S. Air Ambulance professionalism and reliability that we've recommended this program to other hospitals, nursing homes and university medical centers.”

Norris Yarbrough, Assistant VP of Emergency Planning for Ochsner Health System, New Orleans
