CORDELE, GA (WALB) - EMS now has a new tool that will get patients the medical attention they need quicker. A new air ambulance service in Cordele can will help with the race against time.
Air Evac Lifeteam opened a new base at the Crisp County Airport. The helicopter will be equipped with a pilot, nurse and medic. Air Evac will serve communities within a 70-mile radius.
Law enforcement and emergency medical services can now call on them to transport anyone who is critically injured.
"With the ambulance it takes about 45 minutes to drive here to Macon. And it takes us 20 minutes to fly. If there happens to be an accident on I-75, we can land to the accident scene and provide them help, said Program Director, Tony Sumrow.
The Cordele location can also provide back up for the Columbus base if they need it. Air Evac Lifeteam has more than 85 bases in 14 states.
