Enjoy The Tatenhill Airbase Open Day During The Heatwave

Wednesday 13th July 2022

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s annual open day return at its operational airbase in Tatenhill, Burton-upon-Trent, on Sunday (17th July) and organisers are encouraging visitors to take extra care on the day due to the heatwave.

Sunday is set to be one of the hottest days of the year and a Met Office Amber weather warning has been enforced for most of the UK. So Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is urging those planning on attending to enjoy the fun-filled family day out to stay safe in the high temperatures.

Emma Wood, head of fundraising and marketing for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: “We are all looking forward to our first airbase open day event in three years but the safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff is of the utmost importance to us, so we have some key advice for those coming along to support our lifesaving service.”

  • Bring the essentials: The best protection in warm, sunny weather is cool loose clothing, sun cream, a suitable hat, and sunglasses. Visitors are being advised to apply sun cream before they arrive at Tatenhill and reapply at regular intervals throughout their visit.
  • Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water is important in warm weather as it helps us stay hydrated. On the day there will be plenty of refreshments and water on offer.

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s Tatenhill Airbase Open Day is set to run between 10am and 4pm and will include static helicopter tours and incident demonstrations from the critical care crew on-board the charity’s lifesaving fleet, food stands, stalls with products from local businesses, and support from other local emergency services. The event offers free entry and parking for all visitors.

 To find out more about Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s lifesaving service, head along to the airbase open day on Sunday 17th July between 10am and 4pm, at Tatenhill Airfield, Burton-upon-Trent, DE13 9PD.
