Contact the “Just for Kids” Transport Team

Registered nurses, respiratory therapists and emergency medical technicians are a part of each transport team. They receive extensive continuing education on topics including cardiopulmonary resuscitation, advanced life support, trauma care, pharmacology and flight physiology. Our pilots are trained in visual flight rules (VFR) and instrument flight rules (IFR), and have hundreds of hours of experience in the airframes. Physicians trained in neonatology, pediatric emergency medicine and pediatric critical care are available for transports when necessary.
