With every minute lost between a person suffering a cardiac arrest and being defibrillated reducing the chance of recovery by 10%, having an AED at Bushy Wood may make a significant difference.

Our ‘high technology digital weighing system’

In preparation for WS2017 a number of team members loaded equipment into the EDSFAT Ambulance Support Unit today. Firstly the weight of all the equipment was checked using our high technology digital weighing system. Once weighed and packed, it was loaded and secured into the rear of the ASU.

The ASU’s New Doors

Completed by Barry and Brian

The new lorry doors fitted by Barry and Brian

Thanks to Barry and Brian, the side doors of the Ambulance Support Unit have been replaced. As many of you will be aware, the old side doors had reached the end of their life. Barry and Brian removed the old doors, fitted the new ones and updated the securing and locking systems. This has improved both the security and the looks of the vehicles.
