Northern Ireland’s new air ambulance helicopter landed near the Titanic Centre after making its first flying visit. It was welcomed by representatives from Belfast firm Tughans’, which played the main role in establishing the service. Air Ambulance Northern Ireland is the first medical flight helicopter to be servicing the region.

According to Mr. Brown, this is a huge step that could potentially save the lives of many people in Northern Ireland. And the firm has been providing the medical flight organization with pro bono service, where they offer legal and professional advice to help them maintain a charitable status. The firm has been regularly participating in pro bono work to fulfill their corporate social responsibility. Brown also stated that Tughans has a strong commitment to provide support to their community.
