In 2019 with an effort to provide safe, high-quality medical care to underserved areas, Survival Flight Inc. expanded and began Survival Flight EMS, LLC, our Ground EMS division.

In just a short time this division has expanded to include nearly thirty EMS units that are staffed by over two-hundred employees serving communities in both Arkansas and Oklahoma.

Survival Flight EMS ground units have slashed response times in the areas we serve. The City of Heber Springs, our first ground EMS location, was recently recognized and awarded as a “Trendsetter City” by the Arkansas Municipal League for having made their change to Survival Flight EMS and for the associated decrease in EMS response times for the citizens and guests of their community.

 Survival Flight EMS currently holds partnerships with:

  • City of Heber Springs, AR
  • Wellston, OK
  • City of Walters/Cotton County, OK
  • Cities of Duncan and Marlow, OK
  • Cleburne County, AR
  • Van Buren County, AR
  • Cities of Snyder, Mountain Park, Roosevelt and Kiowa County, OK

Our ground EMS team, and the support from the communities we serve, has helped us to continue to pursue our mission of serving our customers and communities with unsurpassed quality and rapid medical services.

SEARCY COUNTY, AR – Today, Survival Flight, a company that provides emergency medical air and ground transportation for critically injured patients, announced that their new base in Searcy County, Arkansas begins operations this week.
