ENGLAND                                  International Air Ambulance Week Awards

The intention of this event will be mainly to help support the donation funded flying medical services around the world, by operating your special event station during at least some of the 9 days during which this event takes place. The nine days include two weekends, so everyone can get an opportunity to take part. The date has been set to coincide with the UK's own fund raising week, simply because the UK has by far the most complete coverage of donation funded medical helicopter services in the world. An additional and equally important aim will be to help the UK's Association of Air Ambulances, spread the concept of a public donation supported air ambulance service to the rest of the world.

While this event is designed to assist the Air Ambulance organizations, it should be noted that the awards issued will be FREE of charge, and will be issued as "e-awards", sent by e-mail in PDF format. Any decision to contribute will be entirely voluntary and is not a condition of receiving such awards. In any case, the stations operating in this cause are not permitted to receive funds of any kind.

2. A Bronze award for having logged a minimum of 5 International Air-Ambulance Week stations.
