When seconds count, count on Air Med

Immediate Response

Because Louisiana’s diverse geography of rich swamps, bayous, marsh lands and vast rural areas make quick response by ground ambulances a difficult task, Acadian Ambulance expanded in 1981 to launch Air Med. In addition to faster response times in rural areas, Air Med also allowed Acadian Ambulance to quickly reach emergencies offshore.

Air Med’s fleet of 11 EC-135 helicopters, four Beechcraft King Air turbo-prop aircraft and one Bombardier Learjet 45 is equipped with advanced lifesaving equipment and manned by highly trained flight paramedics and registered nurses.

Highly Skilled Critical Care

By 1989, Air Med was using fixed-wing aircraft for extended emergency and non-emergency patient transports throughout Central and North America. Today, Air Med flies more first-response missions than any other air medical service in the United States.

Acadian Air Med is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS). This accreditation is the gold standard for air ambulance services in the United States.
