Mercy Flight EMS provides around the clock care and provides services or has operating authority in the following areas: Genesee County, Niagara County, Orleans County, the Town of Hamlin, the Town of Concord, and the Village of Springville. Mercy Flight EMS provides compassionate, professional care to the communities we serve.

Mercy Flight EMS is overseen by an Operations Manager who works hard to ensure that all the moving parts occur efficiently. The day to day operations are handled by a Paramedic Crew Chief as an extension of management. In addition to the administrative responsibilities, the Crew Chief’s roles include overall operational support and awareness of the system, providing EMS Liaison to the local Incident Commanders on scenes, and serving as a Paramedic intercept to assist BLS ambulances as needed or to assist other BLS response agencies within the areas we serve.

911 Emergency Ambulance

As the primary Advanced Life Support provider in our response areas, we offer professional and compassionate care from the rural roads and county highways to the urban Towns and Villages.  As a secondary support to our partners in care, we operate Basic Life Support ambulances that assist during peak hours of the day when call volume is elevated.  We also provide mutual aid services as requested to the counties of: Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Livingston, Monroe, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming.

When you need an ambulance, minutes matter.  Our ambulances are directly linked and radio dispatched by the local 9-1-1 emergency dispatch centers.  The trained Emergency Medical Dispatcher will ask questions according to nationally recognized standards; then depending on the acuity of the illness or injury determines which resources are sent.
