The "Flight of Your Life" has proven to be true—time and time, again—with thousands of thankful patients to attest to the importance of Life Flight to their lives. More accurately, what they each attest to is the life-altering impact our amazing medical team had on their life that fateful day and every day since. They never forget and neither do we.
The North Country Life Flight Air Medical Rescue Team is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit air medical rescue service serving northern New York State. Providing lifesaving, critical care by air to the international destination of the Adirondack North Country has made it possible for the Life Flight Team to have a lifesaving impact that, literally, extends around the world. Established in 1989, this year marks thirty-one years of continuous critical care by air. Ready to respond to anywhere from Lake Champlain to Lake Ontario and the Canadian border to south of the Adirondack Park, North Country Life Flight is a shining example of what can happen when the communities of the North Country work together to make a difference in the lives of residents and visitors of this spectacular region.
North Country Life Flight makes that difference by quite literally bridging the gap between the Adirondack North Country and tertiary care by minimizing the time it takes for critically ill and seriously injured patients to reach the most appropriate medical center based on the patient profile of injury or illness. For a quarter of a century, Life Flight has proven essential when time and care are of the essence.
