Bristol, UK (PRWEB UK) 27 November 2014
Voyageur Publishing & Events Ltd (Voyageur) announced today that it has acquired EMS Flight Crew, an international community of air medical professionals committed to improving safety through the constructive exchange of information, experiences and ideas. Created in 2009 by US helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) pilot Mike Biasatti, EMS Flight Crew is also a leading provider of air medical industry news and jobs.
As the company behind the global print publications Waypoint AirMed & Rescue and the Air Ambulance Review (a supplement to the International Travel & Health Insurance Journal), Voyageur has a wealth of experience in the aeromedical industry. The firm will maintain EMS Flight Crew as a separate brand, ensuring a smooth transition and business as usual for community members.
James Paul Wallis of Voyageur has been appointed community manager to oversee the development and day-to-day running of the emsflightcrew.com website and its related social media pages. Previous owner Jonathan Godfrey, a flight nurse and co-founder of the Association of Air Medical Services Survivors Network, will continue to play an active role in EMS Flight Crew as a lead contributor, as will Stacy Fiscus, a flight paramedic and board member of the International Association of Flight and Critical Care Paramedics.
Ian Cameron, managing director of Voyageur, commented: “EMS Flight Crew is a valuable forum for discussion of issues in the air ambulance industry, so we’re very pleased to be able to bring this into the Voyageur stable. There is some overlap with our existing work, in particular Waypoint AirMed & Rescue, which focuses on all aspects of the civilian and military air rescue community, and we’re looking forward to seeing how these brands can work together to improve our service to the industry.”
Jonathan Godfrey added: “It’s good to see that EMS Flight Crew will be in safe hands. The goal of EMS Flight Crew is to promote safety in the HEMS and fixed-wing air ambulance community around the world, and I’m glad to have the opportunity to continue to contribute to those efforts even after the handover to Voyageur.”
