Matt Hollis is the Base Center Supervisor of Air Evac. The rural air medical lifeteam has been in Jonesboro since 1998. By the time 2004 rolls around, the service will have a new address. They will be moving from the Jonesboro Airport to a building on Highway 18, just five miles east of Jonesboro in the town of Bowman.
The lifeteam has been working on their new facility. The building will house lifeteam crews that work 24-hour shifts.
