The Save Our medevac Service society has been formed by several medical doctors, medevac pilots and rural advocates. We have come together to protect quality medevac air ambulance services in Alberta and northern Canada.
Our goal is to have air ambulances continue to land at the City Centre Airport until proper arrangements are in place to ensure that your family and your community will continue to receive the same timely access to tertiary care that is available today. No such arrangements are yet in place.
With all of the accidents on Hwy 63 and 881 as of late, as well with the constant road closures, we need to have a way of getting to specialist care in Edmonton. If they cannot land at the city centre airport, the extra time that it will take to get the patient into hospital care, and our loved ones will be at risk of losing their life.
As there is no formal petition, I ask that you sign this so that we in Northern Alberta can get the same access to care as people in urban areas.
