Mercyhealth REACT is committed to promoting and advancing prehospital, emergency and critical care through education. REACT is passionate about education and offers support to EMS, fire, law enforcement and hospital partners by providing educational programs for all organizations in the service area.
Medical educational offerings
Education can be tailored to the ALS and BLS levels. Educational offerings include:

Outreach education requests should be made a minimum of 45 days in advance if CEUs are requested. Organizations are asked to provide the venue and help gather participants.
Landing zone training class
Safety for all is our number one priority. As part of that commitment, we provide a safe landing zone (LZ) for our helicopters and on-scene safety training for prehospital and hospital professionals.
Our interactive training classes include lecture and time with the aircraft where students learn:
- How to request a helicopter
