Medical Air Rescue Company’s Laramie base manager Patrick Currie (front), pilot David King (back) and flight nurses Kelsey Rauer (left) and Jen Querry (right) practice putting a patient on a ventilator before loading them into the plane Friday at Laramie Regional Airport. Nearly all of MARC’s crew members at the Laramie base are from Wyoming, and Rauer is from Laramie.

Before Medical Air Rescue Company came to Laramie, patients in need of critical care and emergency medical services would have to wait for a helicopter to come from Cheyenne before they could transport the patients to another hospital.

Michael Hotchkiss, Lire Fire Department EMS division chief, said while the helicopter crew from Cheyenne does a great job, every minute counts.
