Words aren't enough to thank your staff for what they did for me. I died and they brought me back and have given me a second chance at life.

Getting involved

There are a number of ways you can get involved with your local ambulance service. 

Get involved with our community projects and events

We run a wide-ranging public education programme which aims to increase understanding of our work, how people should use the 999 service and what they should do in a medical emergency.

How we get involved with schools and public education

The public education team organises special events, including junior citizen schemes, crime and safety awareness days, and school visits.
