Overview

Mission Statement

Boston MedFlight commits to excellence in critical care transport by providing the highest quality regional critical care transport system.

Background Statement

Boston MedFlight was formed as a non profit air transport service by a consortium of hospitals in 1985. Originally created to rapidly transport patients with life threatening illnesses or injuries to the proper facility, Boston MedFlight has evolved into a critical care transport system for critically ill and injured patients in the region. Expansion of our helicopter service, creation of our ground and airplane services, and creation of our communications and simulation center, has made Boston MedFlight an integral part of the region’s healthcare delivery system.

SafeTeens Program

We established our SafeTeens program to help teenagers realize the very real consequences of reckless and distracted driving and behavior.

Working with community first responders, high school administrators and faculty, PTOs and student organizations—even the local morgue—our outreach team stages simulations of serious accidents on the grounds of local high schools. Real students are cast as victims. Real first responders swarm in, our helicopter lands to triage the most seriously injured, the hearse arrives to take away the classmates that don’t survive. These simulations are incredibly impactful and make a deep and lasting impression on the teenagers who witness them.
Budget  $20,000.00
Category  Community Development, General/Other
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  Participation and interest from area high schools
Program Long-Term Success  The goal of this program is to help students make better decisions behind the wheel and, ultimately, reduce the number of serious traffic accidents involving students in the program.
Program Success Monitored By  Participation 
Examples of Program Success  Tremendous interest from local high schools looking to sign up for this program.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

 

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
