We are pleased to announce the Essex Air Ambulance will be one of our lead charities for the 2019 Maldon Mud Race.
Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, unlike NHS emergency services, is a Charity providing a free life-saving Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the critically ill and injured of Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas.
Each HEMS Team consists of a Pilot and Co-pilot, a Pre-hospital Care Doctor and a Critical Care Paramedic who can be rushed to the scene of an incident with life-saving support equipment to deliver advanced clinical care that is normally only found in the hospital emergency department. Once stabilised, the patient will be conveyed by air or land to the most appropriate hospital for their needs.
It costs £6.5 million every year to cover all charitable costs and aircraft operations. Without access to National Lottery funding and with only limited support from Government, we rely upon the generosity and goodwill of the people and businesses of Essex & Hertfordshire to remain operational and keep saving lives.
To support the life-saving work of the Essex Air Ambulance enter the 2019 Maldon Mud Race.
