Light up red and save lives in Worcestershire on Emergency Services Day

TO celebrate Emergency Services Day, which takes place on Thursday 9th September 2021, Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is asking local landmarks and companies across Worcestershire to ‘Light Up Red’.

The initiative aims to help raise awareness of the lifesaving pre-hospital critical care provider on the national recognised day for emergency service personnel and to also celebrate the charity’s Air30 30th anniversary.

To shine a light on its lifesaving work, Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is asking local landmarks and businesses with the facilities to do so, to light the skies up in red and show their support of the pre-hospital emergency service.

Charley Burke, Worcestershire fundraising executive for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, says: “The generous support of local people and businesses across Worcestershire is always appreciated by everyone at Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.

“To celebrate Emergency Services Day, which is a big day of awareness for our team of pre-hospital emergency medical doctors and critical care paramedics, we would like local landmarks and businesses to get in touch and let us know that they can light up red.”

Emergency Services Day comes as Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is also celebrating Air Ambulance Week, the only week in the year dedicated to raising awareness for the lifesaving work of air ambulance charities, across the UK.
