East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) is set to feature in a Channel 4 documentary series.
The show will air from 9pm on Monday, October 7 and is called ‘999: What’s Your Emergency?.
It follows incidents from the moment the initial 999 calls are received, as ambulances are dispatched and the ambulance crew arrive on the scene. But it also goes beyond to explore why the call was made and find out what happened after the medics left.
Each week there will be a specific theme: young people, alcohol, mental health, life and death, older people and birth and childhood.
A spokesman for EMAS said: “I genuinely hope the series shows people the very varied, strange, emotional and exciting job that my colleagues and I do. I hope they now see the fantastic people who continually do an excellent job in what is often very challenging circumstances.”
Last year, Channel 4’s first series of the show followed the police, fire and ambulance staff in Blackpool to highlight the work of the emergency services.
