Southern Air Ambulance Program

Twin Otter.jpgThe Southern Air Ambulance Program was developed to provide inter-facility transportation to patients in southern Manitoba where land transportation would take more than 2.5 hours.  This program is intended to reduce the stress on patients for whom long road transports create a health risk.  The program also reduces the risk to paramedics from extended travel times and the time that ambulances are out of a community and unavailable for local emergency response.

The program operates in the daytime only and is staffed by aeromedical attendants.  It uses an airplane capable of transporting two stretcher patients at a time.
