Life Flight

Strictly from a photography standpoint, today’s photo isn’t any prize winner. However, sometimes you just want to post a photo of things you are thankful for. I’m thankful that Houston has one of the world’s best emergency first responders, including the Life Flight air medical transport.  It’s one of those services you are happy to support, but pray you never have to use it.

Memorial Hermann Life Flight is a CAMTS accredited, critical care, air medical transport service based in Houston, Texas. We serve the community within a 150-mile radius of the Texas Medical Center with helicopters and worldwide using fixed-wing transport.

We are the only hospital-based air ambulance serving Houston and surrounding communities.

Since its inaugural flight, Memorial Hermann Life Flight has flown more than 120,000 missions. Learn about the program’s history.

  1. I think it is always a good idea to take a step back and remember the things we are glad that we have. I have never needed life flight, but I know people who have. It is the reason some of them are alive today. This makes just about any photo of air ambulances worth posting.
