So Now You Know #8 – (News media, take notice) CareFlite vs. PHI vs. Air Evac – A good number of incidents here on DFW Scanner involve an air medical helicopter response. What most folks don’t know is that there are three companies here in the Metroplex that provide aeromedical transportation from scenes to the hospital! They are all medical helicopters, but not all are “careflights”, as the public and news media commonly refers. And the difference between them is simple!
CareFlite is an air and ground EMS company known for their helicopter service in DFW. They’ve been around the longest here in Dallas/Fort Worth, which is likely why the public & media call any medical helicopter here in DFW a “care flight.” PHI Air Medical is a national company with 3 helicopters, PHI Med 2 (McKinney), PHI Med 8 (Arlington), and PHI Med 10 (Denton) based here in the immediate DFW Metroplex. Air Evac Lifeteam is also a national company with several helicopters here in north Texas mainly serving rural regions outside of the greater DFW area. CareFlite helicopters are blue/orange/white, PHI helicopters are yellow/black, and Air Evac helicopters are red/white/blue.
So now you know!! Everyone have a Warm and Happy Thanksgiving!
