LifeNet replaces Flight for Life in McHenry

This from Asher Heimermann:

As of April 2020, Flight For Life no longer operates out of McHenry. Air Methods has taken over the McHenry base, which is located at Northwestern Medicine McHenry Hospital. As of this week, the helicopter appearance remains largely unchanged besides the removal of the Flight for Life text which has been replaced with LifeNet.

Flight for Life also closed their Fond du Lac, Wisconsin base in January 2019. The organization now operates just one helicopter out of the Waukesha County Airport.

Of interest … Flight For Life

This from Asher Heimermann:

Flight for Life, celebrating their 35th year of service in 2019, closed their Fond du Lac, Wisconsin helicopter base on Friday, January 18, 2019 after 10 years of operating a medical helicopter out of the city. According to a post on Facebook by Flight for Life, they are reducing their fleet of helicopters. The McHenry, Illinois base will remain operational while their Waukesha-Milwaukee base will likely relocate to the West Bend, Wisconsin area.
Flight for Life launched a ground-base ambulance service last October with two ambulances but will put a third in operation soon according to a post on their Facebook Page.
