LifeStar in Action
LifeStar had two back-to-back PR commitments before noon today, which in and of itself would have made for a busy morning, but then as they were preparing to leave the first annual St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital benefit rodeo at Timer Powers Park (one of our flight medics was riding in it), they were toned for an interfacility transport from Raulerson Hospital in Okeechobee to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center in Fort Pierce.
Normal stuff. Until two more calls hit for them at the same time.
We have a mutual aid system in place with other flight teams, like our neighboring program Aeromed II in Sebring, Florida. They can be to us in around 25 minutes, so when we have multiple calls, they’re usually there, like today.
Happened to catch some good pictures from one of the scene calls – you can view them here, at least temporarily. And, if you’re interested, Martin County has a web page that shows calls in progress. Its pretty basic, but you can take a look, if you’d like.
