We are rebranding to CRITICAL and shifting our focus to expanding our network of Volunteer Emergency Medical Responders across the country. While we are stepping back from the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS), we remain committed to providing pre-hospital emergency care to critically ill and injured patients.
We extend our gratitude to everyone who supported the HEMS Air Ambulance over the past three years. Our team of experienced Volunteer Emergency Medicine Doctors and Medical Responders are already on the ground in counties Mayo, Donegal, and Dublin and will soon be expanding to Kildare, Dublin, Wicklow, and Waterford.
Our volunteers are equipped with the latest medical equipment including defibrillators, chest compression systems, and advanced medical and trauma kits, allowing them to perform lifesaving medical procedures anytime, anywhere. Our goal is to further expand our network in partnership with the National Ambulance Service.
We are proud of our record of responding to over 1,800 incidents in the past three years and our commitment to giving people the best chance of survival in an emergency.
To continue this life-saving work, we rely on fundraising efforts. It costs an average of €25,000 to establish a Volunteer Doctor and €120,000 to equip a new Critical Care response vehicle. With your support, we can expand our service to reach more communities in Ireland.
