WITH LIGHT, COMES HAZARD
Written by the North West Air Ambulance

The North West Air Ambulance has been called out to many serious road traffic collisions in the last few weeks and is urging road users to concentrate fully, ensure speed limits are adhered to and to give some concentration to other road users and pedestrians alike.

AS THE mornings and nights get lighter and with British Summer Time starting on Sunday 27 March, the North West Air Ambulance (NWAA) is urging drivers to not get carried away with the "spring in their step" and end up "hitting the pedal to the floor".

In the last few weeks, the region's only medical air emergency service has been called out to a number of road traffic collisions (RTC's) and six very serious ones. Paul West, Operations Manager and paramedic for the charity said:- "To be called out to so many serious RTC's in such a short space of time is unusual.  Unfortunately we deal with serious trauma and death on a regular basis but usually it is the summer months when we see a significant increase in RTC's.

As the daylight and weather improves the roads will get busier, especially with Easter and the holidays fast approaching. We urge road users to concentrate fully, ensure speed limits are adhered to and give some consideration to other road users and pedestrians alike."


At a cost of just under £1 million a year to maintain, the NWAA is a registered charity and receives no mainstream funding. Covering Merseyside,  Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cheshire and South Cumbria, an area of 5,500 square miles and a residential population of seven million people. The NWAA responds to all major motorway incidents, all serious accidents including horse riding, rugby and motor cycling, serious road accidents and incidents in areas that have poor and restricted road access including golf courses, fells, woods or beaches. On average the NWAA is called out four times a day, rising up to ten in the summer.

For the patient, the NWAA is the fastest emergency service.  Donations can be made by ringing 0800 587 4570.
