FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – TEAAM Aeromedical announced, in October, that it was in the process of expanding its services to Northern British Columbia.

During the latest edition of Moose Talks, President of TEAAM, Miles Randell explained that they currently operate in the Sea to Sky Region in southern B.C., with plans of expanding to Northern B.C.

Randell says TEAAM is a not-for-profit aeromedical rescue program the provides a wide range of emergency services such as medivacs, swift water rescue, and auto extractions.

According to Randell, what sets TEAAM and STARS apart is TEAAM’s ability to offer service to remote areas of the province, on any terrain, which would be ideal in Northeast B.C.

TEAAM is currently in the process of setting up a base not only in Prince George but in Fort St. John as well.

Randell says $3.7 million is needed in order to start a base in Fort St. John, with the majority of the funds to be raised through donations.
