The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) have selected HealthNet Aeromedical Services as the recipient of the 2021 Safety in EMS Award. Sponsored by Horton Emergency Vehicles, the award was established to recognize an organization that has significantly contributed to advancing EMS practitioner and/or patient safety.
“HealthNet Aeromedical Services is honored to be nationally recognized for putting safety first,” said Clinton Burley, president and CEO of HealthNet Aeromedical Services. “Our Safety Department professionals work tirelessly to give our team members the resources needed to keep themselves and our patients safe because that is what matters most.”
HealthNet Aeromedical Services has implemented and successfully executed strategies to support an EMS Culture of Safety which include establishing an internal safety department, addressing hazards posed by fatigue, and requiring all team members to take the NAEMT EMS Safety Course.
In October, the Safety in EMS Award will officially be presented to the program during NAEMT’s General Membership Meeting being held at the EMS World Expo in Atlanta, Georgia.
