Air Evac Lifeteam has opened its newest air medical base in Garvin County, Oklahoma. Located in the city of Pauls Valley, the base provides emergency air medical services to Garvin County and the surrounding regions.

“We are proud to bring another lifesaving air medical base to the state of Oklahoma,” said Daniel Sweeza, president of Air Evac. “We look forward to working alongside other local first responders and healthcare providers to enhance the delivery of emergency air medical care to the communities of South-Central Oklahoma.”

The Pauls Valley base is operated round-the-clock, is staffed by highly trained and experienced pilots, flight nurses and flight paramedics and is maintained by on-site aviation maintenance technicians.

“The base is the first Air Evac base in the state of Oklahoma to operate an IFR capable aircraft,” said David Morriss, program director for Air Evac. “This is an incredible enhancement to our existing fleet because it increases our capabilities for specialty care transports and allows us to operate in reduced-visibility conditions.”
