East Anglian Air Ambulance is a charity providing a helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) for the people of East Anglia. EAAA exists to save lives by delivering highly skilled doctors and critical care paramedics by air or car to seriously ill or injured people in the region. We are a life-saving charity that is only kept airborne thanks to our incredible supporters.
Since our launch in 2000 we have attended over 26,000 lifesaving missions, touching the lives of many thousands of people. Our charity operates out of two helicopters 07:00 until 19:00 from our Norwich base and from 07:00 until midnight from our Cambridge base. We were the first air ambulance in the country to attend helicopter emergency medical incidents in the hours of darkness to unknown and unlit sites.
Help us become a 24/7 service
The time of day or night should not determine what level of emergency critical care you receive in a life-threatening situation. Our vision is to become a life-saving service that is operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week by 2020 – but we need your help to achieve it. To operate a 24/7 service across East Anglia we need to raise an additional £1 million each year, on top of the £12 million we already need to raise. With your support, we estimate that we could attend up to 600 additional mission and be there for over 400 more patients who need our help every year.
Thank you. Together, we save lives.
