CareFlight Ground Transportation 

In addition to four helicopters, CareFlight service includes six mobile intensive care units (MICUs) for ground transport. The MICUs:

  • Are staffed with a certified flight nurse, critical care paramedic, and emergency medical technician
  • Are fully-equipped intensive care units
  • Are in service 24 hours a day
  • Cover a 75-mile radius from Miami Valley Hospital

The MICUs provide transportation from accident scenes and community hospitals to Miami Valley Hospital’s Level 1 trauma center. MICUs are based at four locations:

  • Miami Valley Hospital
  • Miami Valley Hospital South
  • Miami Valley Hospital North
  • Jamestown Emergency Center

MICU Fleet

The CareFlight fleet of MICUs are Kenworth medium duty T-270 chassis vehicles equipped with upgraded safety features, including:

  • Air bags in the patient action area
  • LED (light emitting diode) lights mounted in the crew compartment, indicating turns and braking being made by the driver
  • Tracking devices for the communications center (as well as tracking in the secondary Med-Trans radio)
  • Tire pressure gauges to monitor low pressure, eliminating potential flat tires
  • Primary and secondary sirens
  • Exhaust filtering system

The MICUs have a gross weight rating of just over 25,000 pounds, and the 6.7 liter PX-7 Cummings engine delivers 280 horsepower.
