"We are excited to be working with LifeNet of New York on this open house and officially welcoming them to the Ticonderoga Area business community," shared Matthew Courtright – TACC President & CEO. "In addition to providing access to lifesaving care in our region, LifeNet of New York has brought more than a dozen jobs to the area and has invested in facility improvements. We hope to see TACC members and community leaders, businesses, and organizations at this open house."


The strategic placement of this base provides a much reduced response time to hospitals and 911 emergencies within the VT counties of Addison, northern Bennington, Chittenden, Franklin, Grand Isle, Lamoille, Rutland and Washington as well as to the counties of Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Warren and Washington in the State of New York.  Additionally, the ordering counties greatly benefit from an added resource in times of need. 


"It has been an honor to serve the Ticonderoga and surrounding communities for more than two decades," said David Poulsen, vice president of Air Methods. "The care we provide in our flying ICUs, in conjunction with the key decision-making and level of care provided by existing emergency services and hospitals, make a positive difference in the outcome of many lives in this area."


The year-round air medical base is staffed 24 hours a day by emergency medical services (EMS) pilots, critical care flight nurses, critical care flight paramedics and aviation maintenance technicians, creating 14 jobs. The helicopter is equipped with a variety of critical care supplies and medications found in a hospital emergency room or intensive care unit (ICU). These include items such as oxygen, airway resuscitation equipment, heart monitor/defibrillator, suction, IV pump and fluids, specialized monitor/testing equipment, ventilators, and emergency medications.
