The young people were shown around one of the £8million air ambulances and given a talk by a London’s Air Ambulance staff member.
Because of restrictions on the number of people allowed up on the Helipad at any one time, the NASSA party was split into two groups. One group watched on while the ambulance was launched to attend a stabbing victim in south-west London, while the other group saw the ambulance return.
NASSA has been working in partnership with London’s Air Ambulance since the summer of 2019. Specially formulated basketball skills sessions wrap around talks from London’s Air Ambulance Outreach Manager Rhiannon Evans.
She educates the NASSA young people on the work of the emergency services, particularly in relation to victims of knife crime.
