Life Link III passes the ACSF safety test
Life Link III operates nine helicopter bases in cities including Alexandria, Blaine, Brainerd, Duluth, Hibbing, Rush City and Willmar, Minnesota; and Marshfield and Rice Lake, Wisconsin. The ACSF approves of its work.
Being part of the ACSF will enable Life Link staff to address safety issues as they arise.

Life Link III, an air medical transportation company with one fixed-wing aircraft and nine helicopter bases across Minnesota and Wisconsin, has joined the non-profit Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF) and its Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP).

The ACSF provides an array of programmes for its more than 240 members, enabling them to achieve the highest levels of safety in personal, charter and business aviation.

Matthew Nelson, director of operations at Life Link III, regards his company's membership in ASAP as a means to help its operational control centre specialists, mechanics and pilots navigate any safety-related issues as they arise. “We have a 'Just Culture' at Life Link III, and safety is interwoven in everything we do,” he says. “One of our beliefs is 'do the right thing even when it's difficult'. Sometimes, speaking up is difficult if you make an error or feel something is unsafe. But we're all human, and we're going to make mistakes. To have the opportunity of bringing forward that error or lesson learned, without fear of any consequences, is extremely important.”
