Busiest year to date as Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance responds to over 1,000 life-threatening calls
Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance responds to 1,009 missions during 2016. Throughout 2017 the Charity will need to raise £ 2.5 million
LNAACT, January 27, 2017 - The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, which responds to life-threatening emergency calls across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, undertook 1,009 missions during 2016 – 95 more than the previous year.
The Helicopter Emergency Medical Service responds to some of the most serious incidents across the two counties including road traffic collisions, cardiac arrests, farming, industrial & agricultural incidents, sporting & horse riding accidents and many more. The service treats both adults and children.
The infamous yellow Ambucopter can reach any corner of the two counties in less than 20 minutes and our highly skilled team of Doctors and Paramedics deliver the same level of care that you would expect from a hospital emergency department. We also have a Rapid Response Vehicle enabling us to respond to far more emergencies than ever before – something that is reflected in the number of missions undertaken last year.
CEO Karen Jobling, said: “Every week I hear inspiring, heart-warming of people whose lives we have saved. One such person is Michael Govier, who recently came to visit the charity and crew to share his story.“
Throughout 2017 the Charity will need to raise £2.5million.
The year is already set to be an exciting time for the Charity as it prepares to take delivery of its new AgustaWestland 169 aircraft – something only possible thanks to the continued support of the people of Lincs & Notts since 1994.
