EVERY second counts – that’s the theme of this year’s ‘Air ambulance Week’.
The drive, which started this Monday, is aimed at highlighting the incredible care delivered daily by Midlands Air Ambulance Charity and the UK’s other 21 air ambulance operators.
And local residents are being urged to show their support and help the local air ambulance charity to continue providing lifesaving care by donating to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s online bucket collection at http://justgiving.com/campaign/maaconlinebucketcollection
Alternatively, a one off donation can be sent through to http://midlandsairambulance.com/donatenow
The charity’s specialist team of critical care paramedics, consultant doctors, pilots, engineers, and dispatchers provide vital a rapid response, pre-hospital emergency service, wherever it is needed.
Each day Midlands Air Ambulance Charity attends an average of ten lifesaving missions across Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, the West Midlands and Worcestershire.
This means that across the week it will be dispatched to approximately 70 missions.
All missions are entirely funded by donations, as the charity does not receive Government funding.
