Air Ambulance NI

Overview

Air Ambulance NI

Air Ambluance NI is a charity in Northern Ireland who work in partnership with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) to provide the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the region.

Serious or life threatening situations can happen to anyone at any time and on average, every single day in Northern Ireland, two individuals find themselves in critical need of AANI.

The charity's operational helicopter carries a crew compiling pilot, doctor and paramedic, 365 days of the year operating for twelve hours every day.  They attend some of the most traumatic medical incidents across the province and are dedicated to delivering the very best possible pre-hospital critical care, both at the scene and whilst transferring the patient to the most appropriate hospital for their specific injuries.

Their EC135 helicopter can get anywhere in the province in approx twenty five to thirty minutes and the rapid response is vital in an emergency situation.  If a patient reaches hospital within the Golden Hour (60 minutes after their injury) their chances of survival are dramatically increased.
