The second series of the Channel 4 documentary 999: What’s Your Emergency broadcasts from 7 October 2013 and features control room and frontline staff from the London, East of England and East Midlands ambulance services.

You can watch the trailer here.

Filming took place over a four-week period in July 2013. As well as following crews and call takers as they went about their jobs, film makers interviewed staff about the highs and lows of their job. Each episode is based on a theme and covers call-outs to young people, mental health, alcohol and older people. The series aims to highlight the work of our crews and call takers, and give viewers a better understanding of the challenges the ambulance services are facing.

You can also follow and interact on Twitter during the series by using the hashtag #999whatsyouremergency while the programme airs.
