LOGAN - On April 20, 2009, the Air Evac Lifeteam service was officially established in Logan County. This past Saturday, exactly 10 years from that date, members of the organization set up shop at their base at the Logan County Airport to celebrate the anniversary.

Founded in rural Missouri in 1985, Air Evac is the largest independently operated emergency transport via helicopter provider in the United States, with hundreds of bases throughout dozens of states. On every flight is a pilot, a critical care paramedic and a critical care nurse.
