One of our most loyal volunteers for 20 years, we were proud to carry Don on his final journey in one of his favourite Heritage Ambulances. With our Two Motorcycles an escort was provided to the Crematorium to await the fly over of the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance before the service. Don was a great person to work with at both Retford Ambulance Station and as Liaison Officer at Kings Mill hospital.
The AHS participated on Saturday and Sunday in dealing with mass casualties and deaths after the very realistic DoodleBug raid on the Abbey at Rufford Country Park,along with the AFS and wartime medical sevices giving the public a very realistic reminder of our wartime history.After the event the public were shown the art of casualty injury make-up,and machinery used in these circumstances.
AHS provided a Paramedic motorcycle including Paramedic and Emergency Ambulance to demonstrate the appropriate services to the public with Police and Fire service.
Several events have been held at Nottinghamshire libraries including this one at Worksop. AHS also displayed equipment used by the Ambulance service since the formation of the NHS.
