Care Flight Service Area and Environment
Care Flight provides air ambulance, critical care transport services from five bases across northern Nevada and northeastern California. Each base has a functional coverage area of approximately 150 miles. Care Flight can transport patients to the facility best suited for their medical needs to cities like Sacramento, Oakland, San Francisco and Palo Alto.
Due to the unique geographical terrain and environmental conditions in Care Flight’s service area, Care Flight is designated as a Helicopter First Responder and is not required by Med-Trans, our aviation partner, to have first responder ground unit support in place in order to respond to a scene. This is a unique designation allowing patient care to begin without delay.
