The importance of close co-operation between the different industries is paramount and that patient well-being is the number one priority when responding to an incident.  The Association is there to represent those involved not only operationally ie treating patients, but also looks at the bigger picture; representing the charitable trusts who fund the service, the operators, ambulance services and associated trades.

The Association endeavours to build on existing relationships between all parties involved to develop a continually improving emergency response network, as well as working with its members to ensure good practice at all times.
