Community Responder Vehicles

We have been chosen by East Midlands Ambulance NHS Trust to trial a new Community Responder Vehicles (SKODA FABIA HATCHBACK – Non Blue Light) in South Northamptonshire area starting from Mid-October. This is one of five vehicle introduced by the trust across EMAS. During the initially 12 months period it will be used by Brackley and Oundle Groups as well. All 5 Community Response vehicles will be fitted with a fixed terminal airwave radio and satnav. Activation will be by text messaging with use of airwave PTT radio when dispatched to communicate with the CFR Control. Once the vehicle has been delivered, there will be a local/national press release.
