Until recently, Northern Ireland was the only UK region without an air ambulance. The service, which is funded through a charity, needs to raise £2 million a year to operate. Farm safety is an important area of work for the Union and we believe this life-saving service is a major benefit to farmers and rural communities. The air ambulance gets emergency medical services to the countryside quickly, ultimately improving the chances of someone injured and saving lives.
