Service Profile

Our Activity

The NAS operates from over 100 locations throughout Ireland. In 2016 we responded to:

-          343,000 ambulance calls

-          Transported 44,000 Intermediate Care patients

-          Co-ordinated and dispatched more than 800 Aero Medical / Air Ambulance calls

-          Completed 600 Paediatric and Neonatal retrievals

-          And continues to support and develop Community First Responder schemes

It is important to note that the NAS operates on a national and area basis as opposed to a local basis. Resources are dynamically deployed which means resources are deployed to areas to provide cover or to respond to incidents as they arise.

Our Estate, Fleet and Equipment

The NAS supply services from 102 locations throughout Ireland. A review of our estate commenced in late 2015 to support the future operation of the service and Vision 2020. We operate a wide range of fleet including Emergency Ambulances, Intermediate Care Vehicles, Rapid Response Vehicles and a range of specialised support vehicles. Over the last number of years we have invested significantly in the purchase of new vehicles and a fleet maintenance programme.
