Operations at our first Texas Air Med base began in May, and our flight crew — Flight Paramedics Ben McKee, Steven Hamilton and Krystal Cole, and Flight RNs Brian Forey and Ana Platero and Krystal Cole — look ready for the challenge.
Our flight crews and dispatchers work closely with members of local and volunteer fire departments to establish safe landing zones. We appreciate being part of the Silsbee community.
Our Air Med Texas crew worked with the Groves Fire Department this summer to review night time landing zone operations.
Having a dedicated Southeast Texas Air Med base allows us to quickly respond to calls and make flight transfers when patients need it the most. Our ground and air crews work efficiently and seamlessly to provide the best patient care. This snapshot was taken at the University of Texas Medical Branch Hospital heliport.
