Paramedic Flight Team

In 1982 Upstate Medical University joined services with the Onondaga County Sheriff's Department to create the Upstate Medical University Scene Medevac Team. This dual agency effort combined the roles of a Level 1 Trauma Center, with the use of the Onondaga County Sheriff's Air-1 helicopter. The mission of the Medevac Team is to provide immediate emergency medical care and transport to an appropriate medical facility for the critically injured or acutely ill patient.
