Essex & Herts Air Ambulance - Cause of the Month!


Posted on October 1st, 2017 by Rachel Jackson

We are pleased to announce that Essex & Herts Air Ambulance is TheGivingMachine’s featured cause for October!

This means all windfall donations made by givers that do not log on to their account when shopping via TheGivingMachine, will go to Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) is a Charity that provides a Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) for the critically ill and injured of Essex, Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas.

Essex&Herts Air Ambulance In Action

The service is provided free of charge but, unlike NHS emergency services, the Charity receives no direct funding from the Government or National Lottery. It costs £500,000 every month to keep the service operational and saving lives.

This would not be possible without the generosity and goodwill of people and businesses of Essex, Hertfordshire and beyond.

The Charity celebrates 20 years of saving lives this year

Each of the Charity’s HEMS teams consist of a Pilot, Co-Pilot, a pre-Hospital Care Doctor and a Critical Care Paramedic. The fleet, consisting of two Air Ambulances, and four Rapid Response Vehicles (RRVs – cars) operates seven days a week from 7am to 9pm.

After sunset, the Clinical Team continues to provide the service using RRVs. In addition, an RRV is operational on a Friday and Saturday evening from 6pm until 2am with a pre-Hospital Care Doctor and Critical Care Paramedic.
