HELP Flight celebrates this month its 40th anniversary of responding to emergencies in south-central Montana.
The air ambulance service run out of St. Vincent Healthcare has spent four decades taking to the sky to help Montanans in their times of need.
Providing what can be life-saving care while in the air requires a very specific set of skills.
“With an ambulance background, I’m used to smaller spaces. However, this is smaller,” said Whitney Jacobs, a flight paramedic for HELP Flight. “We’re used to bumpy environments, this is bumpier. In an ambulance, you can stand up and you can move around appropriately. You can’t do that in the aircraft.”
