Charity registered in Scotland SC041845
Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) saves and improves lives across Scotland every day.
SCAA currently operates two helicopters, both EC135-T2is, and two rapid response vehicles - taking expert paramedic care to the scene of time-critical emergencies, whether it be on a road, in a field or at someone’s home. SCAA then transports patients to specialist hospitals to receive the most appropriate advanced care.
SCAA makes a difference - a patient’s chance of survival and full recovery are greatly increased if they receive the right medical care within the first hour of injury or illness. The fast response of SCAA and its ability to reach Scotland’s most remote and rural areas saves vital minutes when every second really does count.
SCAA can be airborne within five minutes of receiving an emergency call and can reach 90% of Scotland’s population within 25 minutes.
Working in partnership with the Scottish Ambulance Service (SAS), SCAA is an integral part of Scotland’s frontline 999 emergency response network, responding to trauma incidents and medical emergencies across the country, covering an area of more than 30,000 square miles.
