Helicopter Safety Initiatives for COTS Partners


​​

As part of our commitment to a culture of safety and inclusion, COTS coordinates a Helicopter Air Ambulance (HAA) Subcommittee.  This diverse group is comprised of COTS member hospitals and public/private first responder agencies working together to ensure the safety of our patients and flight crews.
