BUFFALO, N.Y. — They're ready to go at a moment's notice when emergencies arise in Western New York and this month Mercy Flight has reached a big milestone in patient transport. 

Mercy Flight announced it has safely completed its 30,000th air ambulance patient mission.

"This is a profound milestone that we're incredibly proud of," said Margaret A. Ferrentino, President of Mercy Flight. "We couldn't have done it without 40+ years of support from our board of directors, outstanding employees past and present, and the absolutely invaluable efforts of our first responder and hospital partners. We are also very proud of the fact that there have been over 100,000 patient interactions provided by our ground ambulance crews since the inception of Mercy Flight EMS in 2009."

Mercy Flight is a nonprofit provider of emergency and non-emergency air and ground medical transport. It completed its first mission on September 19, 1981.
