You can ponder as a poet, as you try to find the words…
Just how can you describe this team who fly up with the birds?
Tireless commitment as the blades take to the sky
Preparing for each moment takes precision; honed to try.
Up against all weathers, as they search for cleaner air
Every mission helps a life, epitomising care.
On the scene this golden hour, the maps laid out to guide
Pilots, paramedics and the doc’s prepared inside.
Identify location, they’ve got the ‘long and lat’
Draw a line across the map to where the patient’s sat.
The straight line’s drawn, they’re on their way, to deal with who knows what
The Roman road across the sky; Search hard for landing spot.
Saving lives, this awesome team, deserving of all praise
One hundred per cent funded by good folk in many ways.
Those who give up time to care are heroes alongside
The crew and Maac the mascot; all committed and with pride.
All living with a purpose, don’t leave anything to chance
Let’s get behind and rally for this flying Ambulance.
And as the blades get closer to each place they need to stop
Emotions ease and trust we will, those heroes as they drop.
Professionals with hearts perform their duty; time to spare,
And if you ever need them, they will all take to the air.
