CareFlight App for Emergency Responders

Now first responders at the scenes of emergencies can electronically request a helicopter for patient transport and track the flight to the scene in real time with CareFlight's new app. The app allows dispatchers and personnel from fire, Emergency Medical Services, and law enforcement agencies can communicate through a secure chat function with the CareFlight communications specialist to expedite deployment of the flight.

The app helps lessen the need for ongoing radio traffic and/or telephone calls to request a helicopter or check on its location. The device sends a GPS location of the emergency/accident directly to the CareFlight Communications Center, allowing the requester to track the helicopter's flight.
