Irish Community Rapid Response was established in 2008 to deliver professional pre-hospital care directly to the site of medical emergencies throughout Ireland. Volunteer doctors have made a significant difference while working in association with the National Ambulance Service when responding to 999/112 emergency calls.
Building on this experience and success, they will provide Ireland’s first dedicated doctor-led helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS). Based out of Cork Airport, Irish Community Air Ambulance will provide a vital lifesaving service to the greater Munster area, offering fast access to advanced clinical interventions at the roadside by highly trained pre-hospital emergency care physicians.
