How Does It Work?

We are alerted of an incident by ambulance control at the same time as they are dispatching an ambulance
We mobilise and get to the scene as soon as possible, obeying speed limits
We may get to the scene before the ambulance, and will give vital lifesaving treatment and prevent the patient from getting any worse
We stay and work with the ambulance crew until told to stand down, providing care and reassurance to patients and relatives
