Air Evac Lifeteam was established by a group of local citizens to provide air medical transportation and ensure access to emergency health care for their remote community in West Plains, in the Missouri Ozark region. Although air ambulances were primarily based in metropolitan areas at the time, the company founders believed that the people who needed air medical transport the most were those living in rural areas, often far away from a hospital. That was in 1985.
Today, Air Evac Lifeteam has grown to be the largest independently owned and operated membership-supported air ambulance service in the United States, operating more than 100 bases across 15 states.
