There was an increase of 55% in calls from 2018.

It was an exceptionally busy year for the Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS), with volunteer qualified paramedics responding to some of the most serious emergencies in the county.

NARS in Numbers:

- Tasked to 1402 emergency calls
- Critical Care Calls: 452
- NARS Level 1 (Paramedic/Nurse) Calls: 324
- NARS CFR Calls: 626

The charity is supported by volunteer doctors, critical care paramedics, nurses and community first responders who provide vital care in their own time.

They receive no government funding and rely entirely on public donations.

A team of 13 Norfolk Accident and Rescue Service (NARS) volunteers will be forming a 3-team relay along the Norfolk coastline from Hunstanton to Cromer this month.

The team will be undertaking a 62-mile trek along the Norfolk coastline while each carrying 60kg of lifesaving equipment from the 17th to the 19th of January.

You can donate on their fundraising page.
