Air Methods wins awards at Oklahoma conference
Not only has its Life Flight programme been honoured in Oklahoma, but Air Methods' Larry Brewer has won educator of the year, after his work training hundreds of EMS providers.
Air Methods is celebrating the accomplishments of Tulsa Life Flight.

Air Methods' Tulsa Life Flight programme has been named the EMS Service of the Year at the Oklahoma EMS Conference. In addition, Larry Brewer, one of the company's EMS medics, has won the Educator of the Year Award.

The Oklahoma EMS Conference awards, which honour those dedicated to bettering the air medical field with outstanding performance, awarded the Tulsa LifeFlight programme for its constant dedication to the community, continuous service and its work to ensure that patients get the best care from the moment that the patient comes into their sight. The programme was started 40 years ago and now has two locations across eastern Oklahoma. It is now one of the nation's safest and most utilised air medical transport services and has been continuously CAMTS accredited since 1996.

Brewer was awarded the Educator of the Year for his commitment to his position as an EMS flight paramedic for the last 25 years. Brewer is a flight paramedic with Tulsa Life Flight 2 in Pryor, Oklahoma, and is the director of the Rogers State University paramedic programme. He is continually contributing to the educational development of others and has trained hundreds of EMS providers.

“Receiving this award is such an incredible honour for Tulsa Life Flight and Air Methods,” says VP Shane Farmer. “Our team dedicates its time to serving the community, and its efforts are an inspiration to the entire Air Methods crew. It is a privilege to be acknowledged for its ongoing support for the community.”
