Event Air Ambulance
Where Advanced Care meets Speed & Comfort
AIR AMBULANCE SUPPORT FOR EVENTS or FiLMING
Having professional Aeromedical support at an event or for filming is more economical that you may expect!
Location Medical Services have the equipment and expertise to supply and fit-out a number of appropriate aircraft to meet your needs.
AIRMED support can be provided with Advanced Practice Paramedics or Emergency Doctors (all with AIROMEDICAL AIR AMBULANCE EXPERIENCE) as part of your cover.
Whilst the UK has an amazing network of Air Ambulance Charities supporting the NHS ambulance services. These aircraft are in huge demand, often covering several counties, so will only attend the most serious trauma or medical emergencies and, even then, this is subject to availability.
Having an Air Ambulance dedicated to your event gives three primary benefits:
1. Due to medical advances in care, critically injured patients are no longer transfer to the 'nearest' NHS A&E. For the best outcome patients are admitted directly to specialist centres or Major Trauma Centres, many of which may be a long way by road (often around 1hr to a Trauma Centre). An Air Ambulance provides immediate transfer from site or incident, direct to the most applicable specialist major trauma centre, heart attack centre or stoke unit.
2. Difficult terrain coverage. On a large site or over rough ground a land ambulance may struggle to gain access to a patient and even 4x4 vehicles will be slow and potentially too bumpy for a severely injured patient. An Air Ambulance may be able to Land Close to any casualty and extract them back to the base area or hospital with no bumping and bouncing.
3. Remote Site Ops: Away from the major cities, transfer times to medical treatment can significant, Helimed can be used to ensure time to definitive care is reduced significantly.
Air Ambulances can also be used to access private medical treatment in major cities - some of which have helicopter landing pads on site. As most regional private hospitals cannot accept emergency private patients, air transfer avoids VIP's waiting in an NHS hospital. (Needs to be arranged in advice with the private facility)
Probably the most cost effective Air Ambulance platform in the UK. A small internal space for a Single Pilot Day good weather operations: Pilot + Stretcher + two Medics. Skids allow for field landings.
A step up in terms of space and speed, the 109 has been used extensively as an Air Ambulance platform in Europe. Fast, sleek with retractable undercarriage. Can operate dual pilot with reduced visibility: Dual Pilot + Stretcher + 2 Medics + 1 other.
Other aircraft types & over-water operational capability are available as required.
