Gadsden Could Get Rid of Medivac Vendor

Medivac choppers are often the life line for trauma victims. And one medivac company in Gadsden County is worried it might have to fly somewhere else.

Colorado based Air methods--the company in charge of Airmedic in Gadsden--says the county will be discussing other plans for in-flight medical care Tuesday night. The company says new plans could include more responsibility for Gadsden County.

County leaders say they will look at other options to see what might work better for the area. However, Air methods says Gadsden County currently does not pay for any of its services, the helicopter, or staff. Air Methods has several in-flight medical services in Tallahassee and surrounding areas. The company says it has nearly 350 helicopters nationwide.

We'll have more updates following Tuesday night's commission meeting in Gadsden County. You'll find it right here on WCTV.TV.
