Military mulls hiring private contractor for medical airlift Print

December 29th, 2006 - By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) _ The Army is considering hiring a private contractor to provide emergency medical airlift the military and civilians on Oahu. Army soldiers have flown Oahu patients on an emergency basis, but they had to stop doing so due to a deployment to Iraq.

The Hawaii National Guard has been filling in since April but it too must stop to get ready to go to Iraq.

Major General William Brandenburg is the U-S Army Pacific deputy commander.

He says the high demand for emergency flights in Iraq and Afghanistan isn't expected to dissipate soon. He says this is forcing Army officials to begin talking about issuing a competitive bid process to hire a private contractor in Hawaii by this summer.
