Careflight Emergency Air Transport
When life-threatening illness or injury strikes, every second until treatment counts. Emergency transport may be critical to survival and recovery.
In a region with a large, widely-scattered rural population, rapid emergency air transport is essential. Careflight brings state-of-the-art technology to the people throughout the region, with a helicopter and airplane stationed in Sioux Falls. Careflight is ready to respond.
