The National Accreditation Alliance of Medical Transport Applications (NAAMTA) would like to congratulate Classic Lifeguard Aero Medical Services, an Alliance Member, for reaching their one-year medical transport accreditation anniversary and contributing to the NAAMTA Alliance.
For over 24 years, Classic Lifeguard (a rotor and fixed-wing organization) has been filling the needs for emergency air medical transport services receiving calls from multiple EMS and law enforcement agencies to hospitals and clinics along the Arizona/Utah border with bases in Page, Arizona, Vernal, Utah, and a recently opened base in Riverton, Wyoming.
NAAMTA’s Accredited Members are held in high esteem for meeting stringent requirements for medical transport operational excellence. Classic Lifeguard excelled in this process by showing strict compliance through adherence to the NAAMTA Standards, demonstration of best practice procedures identified in employee interviews and on-site evaluations conducted by auditors who are ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems Certified.
“In the year since Classic Lifeguard received their NAAMTA Accreditation they continue to impress us in providing quality patient care and practicing safety for their medical transports. The time and dedication of Program Director Matt Stein and his employees is evidenced in their transports, training, and commitment to readiness for the variety of calls and the demands of the areas they service. Their contributions to the NAAMTA Alliance resonates their pursuit for procedural excellence and continuous improvement to the industry. We congratulate Classic Lifeguard and thank you all,” Amy Arndt, NAAMTA’s Program Director.
