The HSE National Ambulance Service (NAS) has engaged with the Irish Community Rapid Response (ICRR) regarding the establishment of a charitably funded Helicopter Emergency Medical Service in the South. A Service Level Agreement, developed between the NAS and ICRR, was formally signed by the HSE on 13 June 2019.

The NAS and the ICRR are currently in discussions on agreeing an appropriate date for the commencement of this service.
