GB1EAA - International Air Ambulance Week 2021 This year's International Air Ambulance Week will take place between 4th - 12th September 2021, with the focus on supporting and generating donations for flying medical services around the world.
The event covers two weekends, giving amateurs a great chance to get involved and support the event.
Whilst Amateur Radio Operators / Stations are encouraged to promote the donation causes, it is requested that any donations generated go to the stations chosen local or national cause.
Registration will be mandatory and all stations taking part will be issued a registration number which will be listed on this website. The registered number needs to be quoted by each station regularly. Included in the list alongside each registered station will be a clickable link enabling those wishing to donate, to donate directly to the charity of the service they wish to support.
The event is primarily intended to help support public donation funded flying medical services, whether part or entirely donation funded, though not restricted entirely to those. The location of the special event station can be anywhere you choose to set it up – club, home or if you can manage the permissions to do it, a public place.
No costs will be involved in registering or taking part and a free series of Awards will be available for those who support the event as detailed below.. An award for having registered and taken part in the event. A Bronze award for having logged a minimum of 5 IAW station. A Silver award for having logged a minimum of 10 IAW station. A Gold award for having logged a minimum of 15 IAW station. Awards for SWL will follow the the above requirements More than one award may claimed.
Claims for the awards will need to be made to the IAW’s Award Manager including an excerpt from the log as proof of a valid claim.
The event’s date has been set to coincide with the UK’s own funding drive week for its own helicopter ambulance services. Almost all of these, around 30 in number, are entirely public donation funded.
The event is intended to commence on the fourth weekend of September annually and is to be run by the same team which operates the well established International Museum Weekends.
It doesnt matter who you are in life, it matters that the person in the street that you might not know saves lives. UK Air Ambulance Charities save countless lives every single day of the year!
