#24hoursinEOE is back!

Ambulance side shot

The EEAST communications team is running the fourth 24-hour Twitterthon on Thursday – '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.

Using #24HoursInEOE, the first of its kind took place on 2015’s 'Black Friday', when we tweeted live for 24 hours from around the region during one of the busiest days and nights of the year for emergency services due to Christmas parties and nights-out.  

The 20th July in 2016 was our busiest summer day for 999 calls – hence we’re seeing whether this would be a similar picture this week - but the aim is also to expand on the core business work by covering more areas including non-emergency and support services and giving a glimpse at the pressures faced during the summer.

Tweets will start rolling from 7.00am,and will include an A&E crew, the Patient Transport Service, an Early Interventions Vehicle, Fleet, a community first responder and will then go through the night shift with Bedford EOC.

You can follow the Twitterthon and support the event at http://www.twitter.com/EastEnglandAmb from 7.00am, or search for tweets using #24HoursInEOE on Twitter and Instagram.
