A.L.E.R.T. — Advanced Life Support And Emergency Rescue Team was the second hospital-based air ambulance service established in 1975, and the first to be established in a rural area. Loggers like Clyde Smith, in cooperation with local medical professionals, started the ALERT Program in 1975 which was rural America’s first hospital based air ambulance service. Smith went on to help start the Montana Logging Association which now serves as a legislative advocate for the industry and provides safety training to our workers in the woods.
