Devon Air Ambulance Trust is the charity raising funds to fly Devon’s two air ambulances and in March 2020 the charity also introduced two rapid response critical care cars to its fleet of vehicles emergency.
Accidents and illnesses happen and when they do happen, patients, regardless of age, situation or place of residence, need specialist treatment quickly. Crucial is the speed with which Air Ambulance doctors and paramedics can reach a patient, identify their urgent needs, and provide their life-saving specialized treatments and interventions to slow, stop or even reverse the effects of a life-threatening illness. in helping to achieve a positive result.
In 2022, this vital service turns 30 and is only funded by the generosity of Devon communities, businesses and friends. In 2021, they were tasked with 1384 missions by Helicopter and 516 missions by Critical Care Car.
The Exeter-based aircraft operates until 2am every day and in 2021 was called out for 276 missions in the dark using a growing network of community landing sites.
