Grab your running gear! Air Ambulance Northern Ireland (AANI) is asking the public to don their running shoes and sign up to run the Omagh Half Marathon on Saturday 28th March 2020.
AANI, in partnership with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS), provides the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the region and responds to seriously ill or injured patients 12 hours a day, 7 days per week.
AANI is a vital service for Northern Ireland, our helicopter can get to any location in Northern Ireland in approximately 25 minutes and there is always a HEMS doctor and HEMS paramedic on board, so its a crucial asset in times of emergency. However, we urgently need public support to help us fund the £2million needed per year to keep our vital service running.
