Happy anniversary

Jul. 10, 2014, 9:05 AM

Current and former LifeFlight employees gathered recently at the Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center to commemorate 30 years of service to the community.

LifeFlight began its operations on July 5, 1984, with a single Bell 206 Long Range helicopter. It has since expanded to five staffed helicopter bases in Middle Tennessee, an airplane and four ground ambulances.
