We’re welcoming the return of our 24-hour Twitterthon this Friday (19th August) – '24 hours in the east of England’ will highlight the amazing work of staff and volunteers and the type and sheer volume of 999 calls we receive.

Our first ever 24-hour Twitterthon took place last year on 'Black Friday', when we tweeted live for 24 hours across the Trust during one of the busiest days and nights of the year for emergency services due to Christmas parties and nights-out . This time we are aiming to expand on last year’s event by covering more areas of work from across EEAST including non-emergency and support services and giving a glimpse at the pressures we face during the summer.

We kick things off from 7.30am in the Chelmsford Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) and will be visiting our other two EOCs as well as out with an A&E crew again, but this time we will also be spending time with the Patient Transport Service, Training, Fleet and a community first responder.

You can follow our Twitterthon and support the event on our Twitter page http://www.twitter.com/EastEnglandAmb  from 7.30am, or search for tweets using #24HoursInEOE.
