Newly opened The Warehouse Taproom Bar & Restaurant in Setchey, nr King’s Lynn has included the East Anglian Air Ambulance as one of it’s chosen charities. To mark the occasion they have purchased some kitchen equipment for the new Norwich flying headquarters at Norwich Airport.
The EAAA had been operating from temporary accommodation for over a year, but at the end of June with the build of the new Norwich flying headquarters the Anglia One helicopter team are able to fly 24/7.
Funded through generous gifts in Wills, the £7 million development will enable the charity to finally have the training, rest and welfare facilities required for a fully 24/7 helicopter operation and will make EAAA the first air ambulance in the East of England to fly round the clock.
By flying 24/7 the charity estimates it could be tasked by helicopter up to 600 more times a year, delivering critical care to those in need faster at night and closing the five-and-a-half-hour gap (between 1:30am and 7am) where there is currently no helicopter coverage in the region.
The charity’s doctor and critical care paramedic teams are currently available 24/7 from both its Norwich and Cambridge bases, with the night shifts predominantly facilitated by rapid response vehicle (RRV). From July 2019 to June 2020 the EAAA night teams were tasked more than 500 times by RRV between the hours of 7pm and 7am.
The new purpose-built base provides a world-class facility which will help the charity reach this long-term goal to be there for people when needed, as well as future proof the organisation and bring all of its Norwich-based teams under one roof for the first time. The base also includes a community hub and training and conference facilities, as well as an immersive training suite for its clinical teams.
East Anglian Air Ambulance 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. It is a life-saving charity that is only kept airborne thanks to incredible supporters. To donate to this fantastic charity please go their website – https://www.eaaa.org.uk/
