Pipken And Astle Propose Changes To Medevac Program

State Senators John Astle and E.J. Pipkin are pushing for the Medevac Helicopter Improvement Act, which would divide the program’s helicopters into two fleets. One fleet would handle law enforcement and security, and the second would handle emergency medical services. Maryland’s medevac program came under close scrutiny after four people were killed in a crash in September.
