Flight of your Life
By JOE WARREN
Nobody wants to get that call any time of the day, when a loved one or friend needs medical attention or critical care services that may not be offered here locally, and they need it quickly. But if they do, Dalhart has an air ambulance service ready on a moments notice 24-hours a day and seven days a week.
First Flight, Dalhart’s air ambulance service company, provides around-theclock medical air transport throughout the state or nation if needed, for emergency and nonemergency patients.
“The affordable healthcare act has changed things as some hospitals and they can’t afford to pay specialists,” Jeremiah Slatten Vice-President of Business Operations for First Flight said. “You have a great hospital, but sometimes extra care is needed, care that can’t be provided here locally.”
