20 Years By Your Side

For the last 20 years we have been by the side of people across Dorset and Somerset and you have been with us all the way. We have been tasked to thousands of missions and have helped to save so many lives. During this time, our service has been able to improve and enhance beyond recognition; none of this would have been possible without your support!

The need for our service is rising year on year; we must make sure we continue to be there for the next 20 years and beyond. Your support is vital; we simply can’t do this without you!

We would love you to join us today and support our '20 Years By Your Side' Campaign!

Your donations and brilliant fundraising really do make a difference to patients' lives, thank you!

Assuming the team have not been tasked to an incident, simulated exercises take place throughout the day.

During the morning brief, the team may talk through potential problems that may occur inflight, by using a randomised emergency machine that throws up a scenario such as a fire in the engine. Later in the day, they also perform a clinical simulation using state-of- the-art manikins which can be pre-programmed to display a number of different symptoms. Depending on the simulation scenario, the crew can also access other props such as a crashed aircraft fuselage and an off-the-road car.
