We hope your summer is as peaceful and relaxing as can be and – if you are in London – that you are able to enjoy our wonderful city’s green spaces. We are reaching out today to ask for your help with our landings. It would be invaluable if you could share our dos & don’ts video on social media so your friends and family know exactly how best to help us next time they see us land.
Take one minute to watch my video on dos & don’ts when you see London’s Air Ambulance trying to land.
Every mission is a partnership between us and the people on the ground.
Our average flight time is just 7.5 minutes. You can see how someone not removing their picnic blanket swiftly can easily double that. If just one person does not respond to our request to clear the site, we simply cannot land. We have to find a new landing site, losing the one thing most precious to our patients – time.
You keep us flying every day and we are all humbled by the thought. If you are up for helping us facilitate landings, just click on the button of social media platform you are active on and simply share our post. You can also draft your own or forward this email, of course!
As always, thank you so much for all that you do. And if you would like to see the missions we have attended in your borough, check out our interactive mission map.
