Our response vehicles are both equipped with reflective livery, blue lights and sirens to allow us to reach patients as quickly and as safely as possible. They are also fitted with communications and navigation systems that are linked with Ambulance Service Control.
Our primary response vehicle is a Land Rover Discovery, which has been generously provided by Jaguar Land Rover. This excellent platform provides us with a highly capable 4x4 Response Vehicle that ensures our medical team are able to deploy rapidly in all weather conditions to critically injured and ill patients across the West Midlands. Innovation and development within our service has meant more equipment and space is needed.
