Introducing Cumbria’s Changing Ambulance Service

The Trust has taken the #Team999 campaign to Cumbria to help increase public awareness of how the Service has developed to meet the needs of its rural communities.

To launch the campaign locally, representatives from the Trust visited Carlisle, to help educate people about the Service and the different roles within it. A range of interactive activities took place throughout the day, including a demonstration of how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and perform Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation, as well as demonstrations. Following the event, NWAS posted details on Twitter of its emergencies in Cumbria for a day.

The #Team999 roadshow will be travelling around Cumbria throughout 2015. Make sure you are following: @NWAmbulance and #Team999 on Twitter to keep up with the campaign!
