“No words can express my gratitude for what you did for me that day. I don’t think I’d be here now without the air ambulance. I know I was in a critical situation. I don’t have words enough to thank you” [Andre, TAAS patient]
The Air Ambulance Service has one simple objective, to save lives. Contrary to general belief, the organisation is not government funded and provides two very important functions, Helicopter Emergency Medical Services and The Children’s Air Ambulance.
