Our Emergency Ambulances are all equipped to our high, exacting standards, in fact exceeding many NHS Ambulance Trusts specifications.
These vehicles carry all the equipment our Ambulance Crews need to treat any medical emergency along with a variety of extrication and rescue equipment and additional critical care equipment, including portable ultrasound, Autopulse mechanical CPR device and Pneupac mechanical ventilator on board.
Being equipped to beyond NHS specification will enable us to transport all patients to hospital immediately ourselves rather than call 999 like many providers do and wait an undeterminable amount of time once we obtain CQC registration.
Medical Treatment Centre
Our spacious Treatment Centres are rapidly deployable with a robust X Frame allowing deployment in just 15 minutes! With a modular design allowing for either one large space or a variety of layouts, these 9 x 3m Fire Resistant, Gore-Tex marquees with build in lighting and removable heating/ cooling technology allows for us to run a Resuscitation, Major and Minor bays at events no matter the weather. For larger events, we can either have multiple Treatment Centres or Combine multiple units to make one larger Treatment Facility depending on need.
We can further enhance the scope of this resource and provide hot running water and showering facilities inside when we connect it up to our Staff Welfare unit which provides our staff with washing facilities, a place to sleep, rest, cook meals and keep food cool along with secure storage for personal items to ensure they are refreshed and always totally focussed on providing optimum patient care.
All Terrain Ambulance
For those extremely difficult terrain events, we make use of our All Terrain Ambulance. With four wheel drive, it is perfect for getting to those hard to reach places, round motocross tracks or through bumpy fields and country roads.
Equipped with all the same medical equipment as our emergency ambulance, these vehicles are designed to get our Medical Teams to the scene quickly and are able to transport patients back to the Medical Treatment Centre with its roll out stryker stretcher, orthopaedic scoop stretcher and vacuum mattress.
Rapid Response Vehicle
For higher risk events, we make use of our Rapid Response Vehicle. With all wheel drive and a top speed of 140mph, it is perfect for getting through traffic and down narrow roads or paths due to it's impressive acceleration and agility being far superior than that of a full size ambulance.
Intended mainly to get our Specialist Critical Care Teams to the scene quickly to commence life saving treatment, our RRV is equipped with all the same medical equipment as our Emergency Ambulances including the additional critical care equipment such portable ultrasound, a mechanical CPR device and mechanical ventilator. It also holds our MIRP (Major Incident Response Pack) which can be deployed at incidents where there is a large number of injured patients.
Humber Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat
Our Humber RIB with a 150 HP twin stroke outboard engine gives us the ability to provide immediate assistance to casualties on the water at a wide variety of sporting events. Deployed at open water triathlons, sailing and wind surfing events, this boat is a fast, effective response to any situation. Equipped with an Advanced Life Support Response Bag, AED, Oxygen and an Aquatic Spine board, it is capable of dealing with any situation our Water Rescue trained Paramedics may come across.
Cycle Response Units
Cycle Response Units are usually deployed in teams of two with each team carrying all the essential equipment required to provide Advanced Life Support long enough until further assistance arrives in the form of an RRV or Emergency Ambulance.
Ideal for events with large volumes of people, these are ideal for cutting through the crowds and getting places our vehicles can't! We also find deploying CRUs on marathons particularly effective as they can follow the runners to give assistance the second it is needed, ensuring outstanding patient care every time.
