We’ve constantly brought you updates on the air ambulance industry development over the years. One thing that has been increasingly apparent in the recent times is that air ambulance companies throughout the United States have been expanding their business in this highly competitive industry. In keeping with the industry trend, REACH air ambulance has now expanded its service to Wyoming through its King Air B200 aircraft. It is expected that by the end of this month, the air ambulance company would have a base in Cody, Wyoming and shortly thereafter another base in Greybull, Wyoming.
The New Air Ambulance Service will Help Reach Rural Areas
It’s no secret that rural United States has difficulty getting adequate healthcare on time. The President of REACH revealed that the main aim of expanding to Wyoming is to reach the rural areas surrounding the Bighorn Basin. The air ambulance company would be stationing a chopper in Cody and an airplane in Greybull. The company plans to add additional support when needed through its Colorado and Montana bases.

Preparation is in Full Swing in the Air Ambulance Bases
The medical director of Cody base, Dr. David Fairbanks, would also be the medical director of the air ambulance company for the region. The efforts are on to train a medical team currently. This team would be in action once the current training process is over. The team would comprise of nurses and paramedics with a combined experience of well over a decade in critical care. Dr. Fairbanks would also be a flight team member, which means he would fly with the team when need arises. The air ambulance company is a part of AirMedCare membership program.
