The first of its kind in rural America, A.L.E.R.T transports individuals who are critically injured, even in remote areas. Before 1975 this was not an option in Montana, now this program has flown more than 18,000 missions and saved more than 1,525 lives in the past 42 years.
This unique air ambulance picks up patients in the backcountry, roads/highways and facilities, unlike other helicopters that just pick up at other hospitals. A.L.E.R.T will dispatch without confirmation of ability to be paid, they will not charge a patient if air transport was not needed and they accept the insurance coverage a patient does have and does not bill them for the full balance of the charge!
This incredible program is made possible by dedicated and highly trained flight teams, nurses & paramedics. A.L.E.R.T is able to provide this valuable and life-saving service through community support & board members. The annual A.L.E.R.T banquet in addition to generous financial support from community donors has sustained the program for more than 40 years.
Glacier Sotheby’s International Realty and many of our agents have been long time donors and supporters of this program. And we are proud to announce we are a 2018 Mt. Aneas sponsor at this years banquet, held at the Flathead County Fairgrounds, Saturday, April 21, 2018.
“We are proud that Glacier Sotheby’s International Realty is a supporter of the amazing A.L.E.R.T Flight program. The dedicated and skilled pilots, doctors, and nurses are saving lives daily and can be almost anywhere in our valley, and mountains, within minutes. This is such a benefit to all of us living and visiting this area and we wholeheartedly support it!” Katie Brown
