EHS LifeFlight

EHS LifeFlight provides critical care to ill and injured patients, immediate clinical expertise, decision-making support and safe, timely transport via rotor wing, fixed wing or ground ambulance.

Operating in Nova Scotia since 1996, the EHS LifeFlight team consists of highly-trained Critical Care Paramedics, Critical Care Nurses and Registered Respiratory Therapists. The obstetric, neonatal and pediatric teams are based at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax while the adult, aviation and administrative teams are based at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport. The EHS LifeFlight program is accredited through the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS). 



The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems will conduct an accreditation site visit of EHS LifeFlight November 30 and December 1.

The purpose of the site visit will be to evaluate the program’s compliance with nationally established medical transport standards. The site visit results will be used to determine whether, and the conditions under which, accreditation should be awarded to the program.  

CAMTS accreditation standards deal with issues of patient care and safety of the transport environment. Anyone believing that he or she has pertinent or valid information about such matters may request a public information interview with the CAMTS site surveyors at the time of the site visit. Information presented at the interview will be carefully evaluated for relevance to the accreditation process. Requests for public information interviews must be made in writing and sent to CAMTS no later than 5 business days before the site survey begins. The request should also indicate the nature of the information to be provided during the interview. Such request should be addressed to:

                Office of the Executive Director
                Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems
                PO Box 130, Sandy Springs, SC 29677

The Commission will acknowledge such written requests in writing or by telephone and will inform the program of the request for an interview. The program will, in turn, notify the interviewee of the date, time and place of the meeting.

This notice is posted in accordance with the CAMTS requirements and may not be removed until the site visit is completed .
