What is EMS Flight Safety Network?
The heart of Flight Safety Network is people.
Flight Safety Network is the people who keep air ambulance flights safe.
The people who keep you from becoming the next air medical statistic.
The people who care for what matters most to you --the people you love.
But that's not all . . .
Flight Safety Network is also a thriving online community and powerful training & membership website . . .
Most folks think air medical is about Flight Crews and Helicopters --because that's what they see. So flight crews and helicopters is what they think of when they hear the words air medical or air ambulance.
But Flight Safety Network is more. A lot more . . .
We love our flight crews and helicopters . . . but we know they're just one part of a bigger network, a bigger purpose, a bigger dream.
Flight Safety Network includes the whole team.
Flight Safety Network includes everyone who works hard to keep flight crews, patients, and your loved ones --safe.
The Flight Safety Net Philosophy
The Flight Safety Net philosophy is a ground-up, team approach to air medical safety and success.
Teamwork is what keeps us alive.
People are who gets it done.
We want the same thing every air medical professional wants - zero air medical accidents.
But the zero-accidents goal is nothing new . . . who doesn't want to see a complete stoppage of all medical helicopter and airplane crashes?
What's different about Flight Safety Network is our philosophy on how to get it done.
A new approach . . .
You can read our full philosophy in The Flight Safety Net Manifesto here.
Who Belongs to Flight Safety Network?
Flight Safety Network includes all the careers that influence the safe outcome of an air medical flight. The specific list of careers is hotly debated on the Emergency Medical Services Flight Safety Network facebook page.
Here are some of the careers in Flight Safety Network:
- Trauma Doctor
- Flight Nurse
- ER Nurse
- NICU Nurse
- Flight Medic
- Ground Paramedic
- Hospital Security
- Landing Zone Officer
- Flight Communication Specialist
Flight Safety Network also includes the family, friends and support networks of the people who work Flight Safety Net careers. This is a "no-brainer." Few, if any, professional flight crew believe they could have reached their career goals without the strong support of family and friends.
Success requires support. Thinking differently is silly.
It's like thinking a pro athlete can compete at a world class level without professional coaches and supportive family and friends. Put simply, they cannot.
But here's the catch . . .
If you want to move from "fan" to "player" status . . . you also need these three important things
Highly specialized training and education
An intimate understanding of how Air Medical really works
Flight Safety Net training and coaching programs get you started --
. . . and keep you moving toward your goals.
Or to summarize what we do with our company motto . . .

A Community of Over 201,326 Extended Family, Friends & Fans
Flight Safety Network is also an online community of over 181,326 caring professionals, fans, supporters and wannabes.
Let's not kid ourselves . . .
Professional flight crews willingly admit they could not have accomplished their goals without the strong support of family and friends. Which is the reason family and friends are as much a part of Flight Safety Network as anyone else.
Air medical is one of the most exciting and rewarding career paths in the world.
So it's really no surprise how many people want to contribute to the success of air medical.
