ICRR Air Ambulance faces being grounded in two weeks without donation
The country’s first charity air ambulance faces being grounded in two weeks.
This is because staff at the Irish Community Rapid Response (IRCC) charity running it can’t afford to run it without “immediate” financial help.
And they say they urgently need €400,000 of the €2 million it costs to run.
In an explanatory note to go with the campaign, it states: “Ireland’s new charity Air Ambulance service to be grounded in two weeks’ time without immediate support from you.” And it says: “The ICRR Air Ambulance needs the immediate donation of €400,000 to keep its services flying across Ireland.
“It risks grounding of its vital lifesaving air ambulance that has saved countless lives across Ireland. The success of the Air Ambulance has meant we’ve flown an additional 17 missions per month on average than we expected.”
