Education and Training
LifeFlight of Maine is just one link in the chain of survival for critically ill and injured patients. Other links include first responders, paramedics, dispatchers, emergency room nurses and physicians, and specialists at regional healthcare centers. Every one of these links needs to be strong in order for the patient to survive.
Advanced education and frequent training help maintain a strong chain of survival and in addition to attending annual training and education competencies for themselves, the LifeFlight crew also provides critical care training to emergency medical professionals across the state. Many of our standard courses are approved for CME by applicable agencies including Maine EMS.
