April 2013 AUSTIN, TX... The International Association of Flight & Critical Care Paramedics (IAFCCP) proudly announces the launch of the Tim Hynes Foundation. Through career development, access to education, and programs to improve leadership abilities, the Foundation is dedicated to reinforcing and advancing medical transport safety.

 

"The IAFCCP is committed to promotion of safety in our profession,” said IAFCCP President Chris Hall.  "Creation of the Tim Hynes Foundation carries this commitment forward in the transport community through financial support of campaigns, education, and best practices that enhance safety.”

 

On behalf of the Air Medical Crew Education Fund, Jon Gryniuk presented a check in the amount of $5,000, which was matched by Chairman Graham Pierce, of the Board for Critical Care Transport Paramedic Certification (BCCTPC), with a promise of an annual contribution.

 

As an inaugural fundraising event, the Foundation hosted the first annual Tim Hynes Foundation Golf Outing at the Barton Creek Golf Course in Austin, Texas ahead of the Critical Care Transport Medicine Conference (CCTMC). The fundraiser was supported and attended by numerous air medical professionals and industry leaders.

 

Tim Hynes was an IAFCCP founding member who was passionate about his profession. He lost his life in a rescue mission in 1998. "My dad devoted his life to doing what he loved. His job was never just a job to him. I think he would be proud of the work we will be doing with the foundation” remarked Jamie Kinder. Jamie joins John R. Clark and Jonathan Gryniuk on the Tim Hynes Foundation Board of Directors.

 

The foundation is a 501(c) (3) tax exempt organization supported by fellow philanthropic donations.
