Thank you, A.L.E.R.T. donors!

The 40th Annual A.L.E.R.T. Banquet was a huge success with more than 1,000 people in attendance to support Kalispell Regional Healthcare's air ambulance program.

In 2017, the Kalispell Regional Healthcare Foundation launched a special gifts initiative to purchase a replacement helicopter for the 17-year-old existing rotor. Thanks to proceeds from the event and contributions from the generous donors to the A.L.E.R.T. program a check for $4 million was presented to Pamela Robertson, KRH President and CEO.

Barbara Sue Brodie, a patient who had a heart attack in Glacier National Park and was transported to KRMC by A.L.E.R.T., was the guest of honor. She shared her story and was reunited with her A.L.E.R.T. transport team, emergency room staff, park rangers and many others who helped save her life.

We are also very appreciative of the local businesses that sponsored the banquet
