MedEvac Foundation International announces scholarship winners

The MedEvac Foundation International in the US has awarded the 2018 Safety Management Training Academy (SMTA) Scholarship to Steve Docekal, Director of Maintenance for Health Care District of Palm Beach County and Amanda Ball, Safety Officer and Outreach Coordinator for MedFlight of Ohio.

The scholarship provides formal continuing education for individuals – and their organizations – interested in improving their understanding of safety systems theory and the application of that theory to the practice of medical transport systems.

“It is my goal as Director of Maintenance to ensure that our aircraft are in optimal airworthy conditions,” said Docekal, SMTA 2018 scholarship recipient. “SMTA will provide me with the tools and techniques to improve the overall safety of our program.”

“Ms. Ball’s commitment to safety at her organization is without question and representative of the ideal candidate for the SMTA scholarship,” commented MedEvac Foundation President and CEO, Rick Sherlock.  “We look forward to providing Ms. Ball a broad range of safety tools to put to immediate use at MedFlight.”
