Channel 4's 999: What's Your Emergency?

Eoin Walker filmingThe second series of the Channel 4 documentary 999: What’s Your Emergency, which broadcast back in October 2013, features our control room and frontline staff, along with staff from East of England and East Midlands ambulance services.

As well as following crews and call takers as they went about their jobs, TV crews interviewed staff about the highs and lows of their job. Each episode is based on a theme and covers call-outs to young people, mental health, alcohol and older people. The series aims to highlight the work of our crews and call takers and give viewers a better understanding of the challenges we are facing.

Filming took place over a four-week period from our Islington and Waterloo ambulance stations.
