Community Responder Vehicle

We have had the graphics on our Nissan Navara 4X4 changed from that of a Motor Sport Association Safety unit to that of an Ambulance Community Responder Scheme Vehicle.  This has been done in association with West Midlands Ambulance Service, and it is now registered with them, as an Ambulance Responder Scheme Vehicle, but like every other aspect of our responding work, the cost was down to us, including all the on going running costs.  When we have had to treat patients at the road side at night and in the day, we felt very vulnerable, so now we have the benefit of been more visible, which is safer for us, and our patients.  It can also on occasions, help the ambulance to find the patient more quickly as they can easily identify our vehicle.  The worst of the winter snows did not stop us attending 999 calls and our 4x4 capability also enabled us to give assistance to one of our own Ambulances when it got into difficulties on Sun Rising Hill.
