Air Ambulances

When someone gets hurt in an accident you call for medical help & an ambulance. But if that emergency is far from a medical center, a medical helicopter team must come in & transport the patient. This is especially an issue in our more rural areas of the state where no trauma centers are within quick driving distance. Jeff Smith introduces us to one team that serves rural areas of our state.
