Support Flight For Life® Colorado & Help Save Lives
Flight For Life® Colorado transports patients to the most appropriate medical facility, regardless of affiliation, and can be requested by any physician, pre-hospital agency, fire department, law enforcement agency, ski patrol or search and rescue group. When a patient is in need of emergency transport, Flight For Life® responds regardless of the patient's ability to pay. Because of this, and the high costs of our aviation services, our operating expenses are high. We depend on corporate and private donations to support our capital equipment needs.
