A new advanced medical care non-profit holds launch demonstration today to kick-off their service.

Technical Evacuation Advanced Aero Medical also known as TEAAM works with Blackcomb Helicopters to provide aeromedical transport in hoist and long line capable aircraft.

TEAAM President Miles Randell says they are different to other organizations that currently exist; “It’s very different from search and rescue, in the sense that we are delivering advanced medical care primarily to industry, but we’re willing to help the community if required”.

The organisation relies on donations to operate, and the program requires an annual $2.5 million budget. For any major trauma Randell says they will save the health care system $1 million.

There will always be an advanced life support practitioner on their aircraft – that could be a paramedic or a doctor. The organisation’s launch demonstration takes place on June 1st at 1 pm at the Squamish Airport.
