CAREFLITE PROVIDES STANDBY MEDICAL SERVICES

FOR SMU & TCU FOOTBALL

 

(Grand Prairie, Texas) Despite the different outcomes of the TCU – Baylor and the SMU – Texas Tech games, CareFlite came out a winner by providing standby medical services at Ford and Moncrief stadiums over Labor Day weekend.

 

CareFlite has recently signed contracts to provide standby medical services for both the Horned Frogs and Mustang Athletics. This is in addition to services provided to the Texas Rangers, Dallas Cowboys, Mesquite Rodeo, Byron Nelson Golf Tourament, Susan Koman Race for the Cure, Texas Motor Speedway and approximately 500 community events per year in North Texas . At many community events and foot races, CareFlite’s bike team provides paramedic services on bicycles.

 

CareFlite provides helicopter EMS, fixed wing air ambulance service, ground ambulance/911 EMS , wheelchair/stretcher vans, and specialty care transport. 911/EMS services are provided in Collin, Johnson and Tarrant Counties . CareFlite also provides clinical education to over 1500 first responders per year and offers a free emergency care conference each summer. CareFlite has transported over 75,000 patients by air and over 300,000 by ground since 1979.

 

Families wishing to protect themselves from the high cost of medical transports can become CareFlite members for just $49 per household per year. With a CareFlite membership, patients with health insurance do not receive any other bills for CareFlite services. More information can be found at www.careflite.org .
