Flight For Life Central App
Free app for iPhone and Android that makes requesting a medical helicopter easier than ever. Whether you need a helicopter at your hospital or scene, Flight For Life Central gives hospitals, EMS and fire departments, law enforcement agencies, and dispatch centers an alternative method of requesting a helicopter.
How it Works
The Helicopter Activation function (prior registration and approval required) instantly alerts Flight For Life of your location and request for a Flight For Life aircraft.
Simply tapping the Send Alert button allows you to send a text message to Flight For Life that include s your GPS coordinates, name, organization, and hospital unit or dispatch center.
Once Flight For Life receives your request for the helicopter via the App, our Flight Communications Specialist will immediately contact your dispatch center/hospital unit to confirm the need for the helicopter and obtain further information, ensuring the incident command system or usual dispatch process remains in place.

What if I get a new phone? Do I need to do anything regarding the use of the FFL Central
Yes! It is the actual phone that is registered, NOT the person who owns it. So if you get a new phone, you must re-register your new phone.
