Be a part of the many hands that will support LifeFlight of Maine by completing one of the longest open water swim in New England. Swim the 3-mile stretch of ocean from Lincolnville to Islesboro in Penobscot Bay to demonstrate the many hands of support it takes to bring emergency medical services to Maine islands.
With help from generous grant funding, LifeFlight is presenting a series of one-day conferences across the state called Pediatric Patients on the Edge. Through state-of-the-art simulation, rural EMS and emergency medicine providers will have an opportunity to practice rarely-used but critical pediatric skills in a safe, hands-on environment. The next training is scheduled for May 6 at Northern Maine Community College.
Join us for a one day fundraising workshop in Camden which will be a forum to discuss the changing picture of funding for non-profit non-municipal EMS agencies. The event will include speakers with expertise in fundraising and EMS, as well as a roundtable discussion of best practices.
In an effort to improve response time for scene calls involving remote snowmobile, ATV and recreational accidents, LifeFlight has teamed up with state and local agencies and clubs to establish landing zones along Maine’s extensive recreational trail system.
A LifeFlight helicopter returning to a Lewiston hospital on the 17th of April made a precautionary landing in a field off Winn and Cross Roads in Cumberland. There were no patients on board, and the pilot elected to make the unscheduled landing as a safety precaution after a master caution light illuminated indicating a problem with an engine. The landing was made without incident and there was no damage to the helicopter.
