LifeFlight Provides Critical Care Transport Throughout Maine

LifeFlight’s vision for Maine is a place in which every person, in every community, has access to critical care and medical transport when they need it.

We do this by working with our EMS partners to transform the critical care transport medicine system into an integrated, high quality, patient-centered system worthy of the public’s trust.

We work with our parent organizations, Central Maine Healthcare and Eastern Maine Healthcare, and our aviation operator, SevenBar Aviation, to achieve this mission and maintain a strong commitment to safety.

Giving Starts At Home Fundraiser Exceeds Expectations

Five years ago, Rockland husband and wife restaurateur team James Hatch and Susan Schiro implemented a yearly fundraiser called “ Giving Starts At Home.” Their goal was to give back to the community where they have lived for the last 25 years. The Giving Starts At Home fundraiser is held the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Customers are enticed to make five dollar donations to benefit two nonprofits that are chosen by the restaurant.

“The amount of money raised is greatly dependent on the commitment of our wait staff because they have the most interaction with patrons,” explained Schiro. “We have an amazing staff and this year they put us over the top and helped raise $4,601 which is double last year’s total.”

Ocean swimmers raise more than $115,000 to help LifeFlight purchase equipment for Maine's tiniest patients

After months of training and pledge gathering, 80 open water swimmers, accompanied by their personal kayak escorts and 10 safety boats, braved the chilly Atlantic on August 29 to swim the 3.1-mile channel from Lincolnville to Islesboro in the 3rd annual Islesboro Crossing for LifeFlight. These dedicated athletes raised more than $115,000, which will be used to purchase an infant isolette for LifeFlight’s soon-to-be-purchased third helicopter.
