12th Annual LifeFlight Emergency Care Open

What about COVID-19
As the far-reaching coronavirus outbreak continues to dominate the news and disrupt our lives, we wanted to share what LifeFlight is doing in response, as well as our thoughts on the golf tournament.
Here at LifeFlight, we are taking care of Maine by supporting our EMS and hospital partners across the state who need to transport critical patients to a higher level of care. We’re also working closely with colleagues across the country and the world to ensure we are following the latest science-based guidance on how to transfer patients with COVID-19.
You may recall that funds raised at the Emergency Care Open support advanced training and education for LifeFlight’s clinical crew and the larger EMS community. We’re especially grateful for that support today, when the capacity and capability of LifeFlight and the emergency healthcare system may be tested. Thanks to you, we are prepared.
We are cautiously optimistic that life will settle down in a timeframe that allows us to move ahead with golf tournament as planned. However, we will be evaluating the risks on a regular basis. We expect to update the public through our website and social media every two weeks, and plan to make a final decision about cancelling or postponing the ECO by mid-May.
In this time of uncertainty and concern, community is more important than ever and we’re reminded just how special the ECO community is in particular. The good news is that people in Maine are known for their community-mindedness and willingness to lend a hand. We’re lucky in our line of work to see first-hand just how often Mainers are ready to jump in and help. Dealing with COVID-19 and its societal effects is going to require teamwork. We’ll need to rely on each other and all of our communities will be important partners as we address the needs of the larger community.
Thank you for all of your past support. We hope to play golf with you in June!
