26 members attended at various stages during the meeting. Sam Riddell gave a presentation which gave an interesting insight into the very important role and work of the Scottish Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA). It currently runs 2 helicopters. Sam explained how it was organised and how it runs alongside the government system. He also took us through a simulated call-out in a short video. More details can be found on their web site.
After the presentation there was time for a general chat among members.
