Whether you're looking to raise money from a hobby, a community-led initiative or an exhilarating bucket list challenge, you can raise vital funds, inspire others and make a meaningful difference to your local life-saving charity.
We are here to assist everyone who lives, works, or is travelling through the region. Our free life-saving service is provided 24/7 by helicopters and by rapid response vehicles (RRVs) in the hours of darkness.
On average, we treat 1,000 patients every year, with our HEMS team dispatched approximately six times per day across Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas.
We strive to save lives, reduce or prevent disability, or suffering from critical illness and injury, by delivering a first-class pre-hospital emergency medical service, but we rely on the goodwill and generosity of people and businesses in our local communities to keep our life-saving service operational. With two helicopters and a fleet of rapid response vehicles (RRVs), our life-saving service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Each base works a twelve-hour helicopter shift when daylight hours allow. The shift continues in a rapid response vehicle (RRV) when daylight hours are reduced.
