Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance gets new rapid response vehicle
3:00pm Wednesday 16th October 2013 in News
DORSET and Somerset Air Ambulance has taken delivery of a new Rapid Response Vehicle (RRV).
The Skoda Octavia Scout was purchased by the charity to replace an older model, which has served it for the past seven years.
The car will respond to incidents when elements restrict the helicopter flying, as well as giving additional resources for an incident that needs both a helicopter and land vehicle.
It is equipped with the same equipment found on a land ambulance – oxygen, response bags, paediatric, burns and asthma kits, defibrillator and more.
The car was bought by the charity and converted by the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust.
