Eagle lll Services

EAGLE III's transportation service is provided by ground ambulance, helicopter, turbo prop or jet aircraft from medical facilities or accident scenes.  Which vehicle is used for transport is dependent on patient status, weather conditions and distance.  The dispatcher will assist in making the most appropriate decision for mode of transport and relay all important information to the flight team.

Activation of any transport service should take place as early as possible to ensure appropriate resources arrive for a prompt and timely transfer. EAGLE III can be requested by:

  • Physicians
  • Hospitals
  • Other skilled medical facilities
  • First responders
  • Emergency medical services personnel
  • Law enforcement officers and dispatchers
  • Fire departments.

EAGLE III can be requested to go on standby while emergency vehicles are still enroute or while patients are being evaluated at the scene. If necessary, EAGLE III can be canceled at any time. There is no charge to the patient or the requesting agency for cancellations.
