Critical Care Cars

We save lives by both road and air

No one ever knows when a call will come in for our services, but we do know that people in our community need our Critical Care Team 24/7 and 365 days of the year.

Like on our helicopters, the Critical Care Cars, previously known as Night Cars, have highly trained medics onboard who effectively bring emergency hospital care to the patient – providing vital medical intervention to them sooner. These are the things that can mean the difference between life and death so it’s important we choose the most suitable way of reaching those who need our help.

Right now, we choose not to fly our helicopters at night as we have a good local road network and the roads are clearer at night and this is when the car really comes into its own. However, our Critical Care Cars, are also frequently used within the day to attend emergencies that are quicker to reach by road.

 

Not many people know that we operate Critical Care Cars so that we can provide critical care both day and night. It’s not how we get there that’s important, it’s that we get there. Paul Mullins, Critical Care Paramedic
