Air Methods subsidiary LifeStar Georgia has established a new helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) base in Hinesville, to serve the state’s southern regions. The base, known as LifeStar 2, will be home to a Bell 407 helicopter fitted with onboard facilities for the storage of blood supplies, and will be staffed by a permanent crew of flight and medical staff. The base’s clinicians will also be trained and equipped for pediatric intensive care transport. “We will be able to facilitate air medical transports for trauma, STEMI, stroke, LVAD and ventilator patients to Level 1 or 2 trauma facilities or other tertiary care facilities,” said Jason Bober, Area Manager with Air Methods. Crystal Hensler, EMS Director with the Liberty County Board of Commissioners added: “Liberty County is excited for the opportunity to have this beneficial resource within our local community. Air medical transportation is vital to our emergency missions."
