Staff and volunteers at Great Western Air Ambulance are celebrating a very special birthday


Great Western Air Ambulance, June 03, 2015 - by Laura Tremelling - GWAAC has been proving lifesaving critical care to those who need it the most for seven years.

The charity was formed in 2008, and the crew attended their first mission on June 3rd.

They were called to a road traffic collision on the M5, at junction 21 for Weston-super-Mare.

Since that day the team, who are based at Filton airfield, have attended 14,323 missions.

Of those 4,251 were by helicopter and 10,072 by one of the rapid response vehicles.

GWAAC fundraising manager Emma Carter said:

“We are thrilled to be celebrating our seventh birthday.
“I want to say thank you to everyone involved with the charity since we launched for their hardwork and dedication.
“The number of missions we have attended since 2008 show just how crucial the air ambulance is.”

GWAAC provides one of the busiest air ambulances in the UK, serving the counties of Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire, North Somerset and parts of Wiltshire.

It is estimated that one patient in five – a patient otherwise expected to die – survives.
