East Anglian Air Ambulance Santa Skydive
By Jason Thompson - UK Parachuting
East Anglian Air Ambulance flies 365 days a year, taking highly skilled medical crews to people unfortunate enough to be involved in accidents or medical emergencies in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire or Bedfordshire. Our crew comprises specialist pre-hospital doctors and critical-care paramedics, operating out of two high-tech helicopters from 07:00 until 19:00 from our Norwich base and from 07:00 until 01:30 from our Cambridge base. We were the first air ambulance in the country to attend helicopter emergency medical incidents in the hours of darkness to unknown and unlit sites and since our launch in 2000 we have attended over 16,000 lifesaving missions, touching the lives of many thousands of people.
