What does it mean to ICRR?


By becoming a Friend of the Air Ambulance , you’re becoming a vital link the Chain of Survival.  Each day we respond to time critical emergencies, all through the support of people across Ireland.

Our Air Ambulance can fly further and for longer with your support.  We need to pay for the helicopter, the fuel, the hangarage, the pilots and all the bits and pieces that go into making the ICRR Air Ambulance possible.   Each mission costs approximately €3,500.

Your support will enable us to continue developing our ground services.   We hope to increase our number of Rapid Response Vehicles throughout Ireland in the coming years, ensuring everyone in ireland will have access to emergency pre-hospital care at the right time.


What does it cost me?

What’s in it for me?


Our Air Ambulance and Rapid Response Vehicles respond to a variety of emergency calls daily. The most common call outs include cardiac arrests, farming accidents, road traffic collisions, work-place accidents, equestrian related accidents and falls from heights.  We respond to the calls through the National Ambulance Service’s 999/112 call centre in Dublin.
