JONESBORO, AR - The Jonesboro Air Evac Lifeteam will be moving into a new home at the beginning of the year.
The base, which includes crew quarters, hangar and fueling facility, will be located about five miles east of Jonesboro on Highway 18, according to Director of Operations Stu Buckingham. The Jonesboro Air Evac base has been operating in northeast Arkansas since February 1998 out of the Jonesboro Municipal Airport.
"The base will continue to serve residents and hospitals within a 70-mile radius," said Buckingham. "We've had a great working relationship with the emergency officials in that region and look forward to continuing those relationships in the future."
