Ambulances set to be based at Old Harlow fire station

Communities / Mon 22nd Dec 2014 at 05:01pm

AMBULANCES will be based at Old Harlow fire station as part of a three-month pilot to improve response times in the area.

The site – along with a station in Frinton – have been chosen because of a pressing need in these areas to improve East of England Ambulance Service attendance times. If the pilot is successful it may be expanded to Chelmsford, Colchester and Waltham Abbey Fire Stations later in 2015.

Fire stations will be used as what East of England Ambulance describes as Dynamic Activation Points (DAP’s). Ambulance crews will be allocated an identified hatched area located on ECFRS station forecourts between 6am and 2am and will turn out during these times to emergency calls. If they respond to a ‘999’ call, then another ambulance or paramedic vehicle will be redeployed to take its place.
