RIYADH, September 17, 2023

The Helicopter Company (THC), Saudi Arabia's premier provider of commercial general aviation services, has announced that it is a strategic sponsor of the Saudi Emergency Medical Services (SEMS) event, from September 18 to 20. 
This marks a significant milestone for THC as it steps into the spotlight to showcase its pivotal role in delivering life-saving Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) in partnership with the Saudi Red Crescent Authority (SRCA).
As the leading provider of air ambulance services, THC has been a key contributor to the success of the helicopter emergency medical services in the Kingdom among other stakeholders. At the heart of THC’s commitment is their flagship initiative, the Helicopter Emergency Medical Services Programme (HEMS), a nationwide programme that aims to provide comprehensive emergency medical services to 90% of Saudi Arabia through helicopter operations. 
Rapid airborne response
In practice, this translates to rapid airborne response, with THC’s expert crews trained to handle all types of medical scenarios including highway accidents and Inter-Facility Transfers (IFT). THC’s goal is to reach the target location within 15 minutes of receiving the report, ensuring timely transfers and delivering high-quality emergency care with advanced medical equipment. 
By enhancing the quality of emergency medical care, THC aligns with Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030, which aims to improve healthcare services and the overall quality of life for its citizens.
THC CEO, Captain Arnaud Martinez, said: “THC’s biggest strategic objective is to make a positive impact in the kingdom, and one of the key ways we seek to achieve this is by saving lives. To fulfil this mission, THC have placed a particular focus on delivering cutting-edge medical services in the kingdom to aid the ill and injured.  Our partnership with the Saudi Red Crescent Authority is a testament to our dedication to saving lives and providing swift, efficient, and quality care to those in need.”
SEMS signifies Saudi Red Crescent Authority's enduring legacy in emergency medical services, spanning 90 years. It is a platform where global experts exchange insights and best practices and features distinguished speakers, workshops, and in-depth discussions on the latest advancements in the field.-- TradeArabia News Service
