Air Ambulance Assembly
Last updated 08/03/18
On Wednesday 7th March, we had a special high flying assembly when two paramedics from the Wiltshire Air Ambulance came to tell us about their service.

We discovered that they started 27 years ago, when the Police helicopter was used to help a patient at Stonehenge.

They now fly an average of 3 missions a day to help people with serious injuries or illness. They work closely with the Fire and Police services and can get to anywhere in Wiltshire in 11 minutes.

Our visitors also told us that the Air Ambulance is mostly paid for by fundraising activities held by groups and individuals, so please support them if you can.

As part of the presentation they showed us some dangerous situations involving children. Can you spot what's wrong in each picture. The children were also asked to remind parents that they should never use a hand held phone when driving.

Finally they answered questions about their work and said that if you see them flying over, give them a wave and they'll try to wave back!
