Flight For Life Releases Flight For Life Central - A Mobile App That Makes Requesting a Medical Helicopter Quicker And Easier Than Ever
On Thursday, Jan. 31, the Flight For Life Transport System announced the release of Flight For Life Central, a free mobile App that allows hospitals, EMS and fire departments, law enforcement agencies, and dispatch centers another way to request a medical helicopter by using their smart phone. Flight For Life (FFL) - Wisconsin's first air medical program - becomes the first program in the region, and one of the only programs in the nation, to offer this new service.
With the touch of a button on any iPhone or Android phone, a FFL helicopter can be instantly launched to a requesting hospital or scene, shaving minutes off the time in which ill and injured patients are transported to hospitals that can provide them the best chance for survival and recovery.
"Flight For Life has always been dedicated to linking those with injury and illness to the resources that provide the optimum in medical care as safely, quickly, and efficiently as possible," states Jim Singer, transport system director. "Flight For Life Central enhances that goal."
