Beyond a stellar medical track record, every member of EMA Global’s team of dedicated staff are rigorously trained with one main objective – safety. From planning to pick up and delivery, safety is our paramount concern. On board our air ambulance transport, we practice strict Safety First Policy for both our Passengers and Crew Members on board.
EMA Global is fully accredited by the European Aero-Medical Institute (EURAMI). This accreditation standard covers every part of the EMA Global operation from patient medical care to aircraft certifications and ensures all operations are carried out with the utmost safety.
EMA Global is the only medical assistance provider in Asia operating its own fixed wings air ambulances to gain full EURAMI accreditation.
In order to achieve EURAMI accreditation, medical assistance providers must undergo an extensive analysis of their procedures related to patient care, daily operations, flight and patient documentation, staff training and ongoing aircraft maintenance. By maintaining strict accreditation standards for its member companies, EURAMI helps to promote excellence in aeromedical services worldwide. EMA Global has held EURAMI accreditation since 2013.
Our pilots have thousands of hours of flight experience and go through extensive training on an annual basis and receive ongoing training every six months. Prior to every medical flight, pilots participate in a risk-assessment analysis in order to be prepared for potential challenges that may arise. All of our pilots are skilled in assisting our medical escorts and exceed CASA training requirements. They also go through initial and recurrent training through professional pilot training programs.
EMA GLOBAL's medical escorts comprise experienced physicians and nurses ready to fly at short notice to evacuate patients to destinations and medical facilities with the appropriate level of medical care. As medical professionals working for hospitals, our medical escorts continue to have hands-on experience in treating patients. Like all medical personnel working in a hospital, EMA GLOBAL’s medical escorts are current in their medical know-how and subscribe to compulsory Continuing Medical Education (CME). CME consists of educational activities that serve to maintain, develop and increase the knowledge, skills and professional performance of our medical professionals.
