Time saves lives. Helivac saves both.

Immediate emergency medical service saves valuable time

In the event of an accident, the difference between life and death can be mere seconds. You need an emergency medical service (EMS) that can react instantly, provide you with on-site medical attention and transport you safely and quickly to a suitable medical facility.

Helivac provides South Africa’s first subscriber-driven, advanced medical rescue product that dispenses our Service Providers without the need for medical aid subscription or authorisation.

By eliminating a medical aid risk assessor from the process, Helivac can guarantee that there are no delays in getting you or your loved ones the medical attention they require.
