Reno, NV – The first civilian hospital based helicopter air ambulance; “Flight For Life” started at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado in 1972.  Flight nurses Jane Miller and Margaret Tole began flying with Flight for Life in 1975.  Care Flight was born in 1981 when Miller accepted the position of Chief Flight Nurse, and along with Tole, moved to Reno, NV to start a much needed helicopter program to service the vast rural area of northern Nevada and northeastern California.  Both Tole and Miller are still with the program 30 years later. Tole has also filled the roles as the program’s Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer, but has gone back to flying full time as a flight nurse. Miller is currently the program’s Vice President of Special Projects, overseeing the numerous accreditations and standards.
