Essex Air Ambulance
Supporting The Community
County Hearing Care supports the Air Ambulance by charging £2 to re-tube behind the ear hearing aids, all of which goes to the Air Ambulance. Roger Halliday also takes part in the Charity Motorcycle Run which last year raised £35,000 towards keeping the Air Ambulance in the air. All donations gratefully accepted!!

The first Air Ambulance was launched in 1998 and today the EC135 Eurocopter, launched in May 2003, is in operation seven days a week in daylight hours and attends an average of 2-4 emergencies a day. The Eurocopter is fast, warms up quickly and has space for a family member to accompany the patient.
It also has the ability to access remote parts of Essex quickly, bringing highly qualified clinicians and sophisticated life-saving equipment to a patient within the first few vital minutes of an emergency. The aircraft is not affected by high tides or traffic congestion on our busy roads and country lanes. The helicopter is able to reach areas inaccessible to land vehicles, including woods, beaches, docks and golf courses.
Based at Boreham near Chelmsford, the helicopter is never more than eight minutes flying time from any one of the major hospitals in Essex and flies at a speed of 150 miles per hour. It costs in the region of £250,000 per month to cover all charitable costs and aircraft operations but the charity receives no National Lottery funding. To date the aircraft has flown over 10,000 missions.
We believe in supporting local charities that make a difference to local lives, Essex Air Ambulance is a service that makes a real and often dramatic difference in the lives of people in Essex
