Air Ambulance NI offers virtual talks to engage with local community

- Advertisment -

EVERY single day, the pilots, HEMS doctors and paramedics of Air Ambulance Northern Ireland are on duty to respond to serious medical emergencies all over Northern Ireland.

The life-saving service is tasked on average twice a day and since its inception in 2017 it has been called out over 2,054 times.

Behind each of these callouts is an individual, a family and a community that has been impacted by a serious and unexpected incident.

The local charity has always embraced the opportunity to engage with families, communities and businesses to help spread awareness, spark informative conversations and promote support for the service, which relies on donations from the public.

The current health pandemic has cut back on the charity’s ability to attend public talks in person, but it doesn’t mean the opportunities for education and conversation have ended.

In fact, Air Ambulance NI is currently offering online webinars to speak with community groups, local businesses, sports clubs and organisations.

These online sessions offer the public an opportunity to engage with the charity, learn about major trauma injuries, the types of procedures the crew can perform at the scene of an incident and current ways to support and ensure the service remains operational.

If your workplace, community group or sports team would like to book a digital talk with Air Ambulance NI, please contact info@airambulanceni.org or call 028 9262 2677.

The HEMS team attends patients who are seriously ill or injured, bringing emergency pre-hospital care direct to the casualty with the aim of saving lives, brains and limbs.

It cherishes connecting with former patients and patient families. If you, or one of your family members, have been treated by the HEMS crew please get in touch by calling 028 9262 2677.

n Air Ambulance NI needs to raise £2 million each year to maintain this service so public donations are crucial. Fundraising has been severely impacted by Covid-19. If you would like to donate, organise an event or could spare some time volunteering, please contact Air Ambulance NI by email at info@airambulanceni.org or call 028 9262 2677.
