HEADLAND, Ala. (WTVY) - Stationed in Headland, Survival Flight 15 is a family-owned critical care air medical company. And for the third Christmas, the crew is looking to help make Christmas special for a family.

“We do a Christmas wish for a needy family,” explained Flight Nurse Paramedic Mark Reynolds. “Families that have fallen on hard times, whatever that may be, we get what we call a Christmas wish list. We get those items, we take them and wrap them, and then we deliver the gifts to them.”

Nominations come from those within the community, Survival Flights then picks one family and makes their wishes come true. A mission their owner has stood by since their inception.

“Just because what we do, we see a lot of families fall under hardships medical or whatever and so we just like to try to give back to people that are out of work right now and we just try to support them,” said Reynolds.

If you know of a family you would like to nominate for the Christmas Wish, you can send an email to or by direct messaging their Facebook Pages (Survival Flight, Survival Flight 19, Survival Flight 15.)
