Those of you who follow the incidents we are called to are well aware of the essential service the Yorkshire Air Ambulance provides for the Yorkshire community, and in most cases they are the casualty’s only hope of reaching hospital quickly to receive the urgent medical assistance they require.
This week, several CVSRT members gave up their spare time to assist Ascent Productions with filming several scenes for the new series of Helicopter ER, which follows the work of our friends at the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
So far this year, CVSRT has attended 62 incidents, of which a quarter required air evacuation by Yorkshire Air Ambulance. If you multiply those statistics by the number of Mountain Rescue teams around Yorkshire, it is easy to see what an amazing life-saving service they provide.
The new series of Helicopter ER started on Monday 26th September at 10pm and can be seen on Really TV Channel.
