Devona Wright of Cumberland County has been selected as the new regional director of membership sales for Air Evac Lifeteam, an air ambulance service that provides emergency health care and rapid medical transport to rural communities throughout the central United States. Air Evac Lifeteam has a facility in Campbellsville.

Wright is in charge of coordinating Air Evac Lifeteam membership sales and services at the company’s 19 bases in Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, Ohio and West Virginia.

Bryan Carnithan, director of membership sales, said Wright is well qualified for the position.

“We are confident that her enthusiasm and dedication will be a positive addition to this region,” he stated. “She has a wealth of knowledge and brings to this position over five years of experience in sales and public relations.”

After prior careers in insurance and sales, Wright joined Air Evac Lifeteam in 2005 as a membership coordinator in Lafayette, Tenn., Hopkinsville and Bowling Green, Ky., and later as membership sales manager in Albany, Ky.

“I’m excited and grateful for this opportunity to further promote the benefits of Air Evac Lifeteam and its membership program,” Wright stated. “Air Evac offers vital and much-needed air ambulance services to these rural areas, and a membership program that truly cares about the welfare of its members.”

Wright said her vision is for Air Evac Lifeteam “to become an integral part of the communities we serve and to continue to better meet your air medical needs. Air Evac’s unique membership program makes it possible to maintain our presence in rural areas and helps alleviate the financial burdens of its members. I’m looking forward to meeting and working with each and every person who might be interested in this protection.”

Air Evac Lifeteam operates 97 air ambulance bases in 14 states and was the first air ambulance service in the country to offer a membership program. Members pay an annual fee and, if they are flown by Air Evac Lifeteam for life- or limb-threatening medical emergencies, they do not have to pay for the flight.

Memberships are valid throughout Air Evac Lifeteam service areas, so members are covered while traveling through Air Evac Lifeteam service areas.

Annual memberships are $50 for an individual, $55 for a couple and $60 for a household of three or more.
