No traffic jams.
No speed limits.
BUT NOWHERE TO LAND.
Every second of every minute counts for serious
accidents or medical emergencies and the first hour
after any incident is critical. It could be someone involved
in a bad road pile up, a child with severe burns or a
construction worker who has fallen off a high building.
"When the clock starts ticking off the minutes of the 'Golden Hour', the difference between life and death is often a fast flying helicopter that reaches the ill or injured sooner and gets back to A & E quickly enough to give those in distress the best possible chance of surviving".
Dr. David Sutton - Consultant

We have helicopters and hospitals.
All we are missing are helipads.
In an emergency when any delay can be
deadly, being able to land seconds
away from help will save lives.
