Air Transport

Lopez Fire and EMS utilizes three air ambulance services that all offer air flight memberships.


While we do our best to utilize the service of your choice, it is more often than not, dependent on availability of aircraft and severity of illness or injury. Our EMS professionals will always err on the side of what is best for our patients health.


Below you will find links to each service and their membership pages. Our agency cannot recommend a specific provider but can tell you that all three services are used often.
