The EC135s of the ANWB are daily deployed in the Netherlands as flying ambulances. These bright yellow helicopters are known in the world of aviation as the Lifeliners and are also known as the trauma helicopter. The helicopters are used in case of emergency of the highest category when road transport by ambulance is not possible. The Elizabeth Hospital in Tilburg is one of eleven trauma locations in the Netherlands where these helicopters are able to drop off victims of accidents and disease on a daily base. The helicopter will land on the helipad next to the hospital. This platform near the hospital is 24 hours a day able to receive the ambulance helicopter during an emergency.
