Pecan Plantation VFD & EMS would like to provide clarification with regard to the Air Ambulance memberships. We utilize both AIR EVAC and CAREFLITE as both have Helicopter bases in Hood County. Services are based upon availability. All Pecan residents receive a water bill from AMUD and included in these bills are $1 per month charges for air ambulance memberships. The following is a summary of their coverage. Should you have any questions about the air ambulance service, memberships and billing, you are encouraged to contact AIR EVAC and CAREFLITE directly.
