Cornwall Air Ambulance
The Cornwall Air Ambulance is a Eurocopter EC-135.
Cornwall's Air Ambulance, the first helicopter emergency medical service in the United Kingdom, was brought into service on 1st April 1987
The county lends itself ideally to a service of this kind having:
A widely scattered resident population, many of whom live in remote farming communities.
Only two major accident and emergency hospitals, located some sixty miles apart at Truro and Plymouth.
Narrow and winding roads which often become clogged with holiday traffic during the summer months.
Isolated beaches, cliff-tops and moorland areas which are frequently inaccessible by road.
