Building a Stronger Statewide Network


Shreveport-based Life Air Rescue is a part of Acadian Air Med’s network of rotor-wing and fixed-wing operations. Life Air Rescue operates under a partnership between Acadian Air Med and Metro Aviation.

Life Air Rescue responds to emergency scene calls and interfacility transfers within a 150-mile base radius covering North Louisiana, East Texas, South Arkansas and West Mississippi.

The partnership expands Acadian Air Med’s network, which previously included 11 EC-135 and EC-145 helicopters, as well as King Air and Lear fixed-wing aircraft strategically based throughout Louisiana.

Trendsetting Service

The Gold Standard


Life Air Rescue and Acadian Air Med’s Rotor Wing Operations are both accredited by the Commission of the Accreditation of Medical Transportation Services (CAMTS), signifying the gold standard in air ambulance services, and are dedicated to providing high quality treatment and rapid response for the stabilization and transport of adult and pediatric patients. Each flight is staffed by a certified flight paramedic and a certified flight RN. Metro Aviation provides pilots and mechanics for both Air Med and Life Air Rescue and maintains operational control of all aircraft.
