Apollo Vredestein has been selected as tyre supplier for Lowland Rescue and Kent Central Ambulance services. The services join Medi 4 Ambulance Service in using the manufacturer’s products on their fleets.
Following long-term testing with Vredestein Quatrac 5 and Comtrac 2 all-season tyres, Medi 4 Ambulance Services Ltd. has selected Apollo Vredestein as its tyre supplier of choice. Announcing its new role, Apollo Vredestein comments that its tyres easily proved to be the “perfect choice” for the pre-hospital patient care and transport solutions provider’s fleet, for which “safety and the ability to perform adequately in all weathers is paramount.”
Following on from its fitment of Michelin CrossClimate+ tyres to 148 rapid response Skoda Scout cars last year, East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) has now moved its 449-strong blue light ambulance fleet across to a 100 per cent Michelin Agilis CrossClimate tyre policy. The rollout will see 332 Fiat Ducato accident and emergency ambulances and 117 Peugeot Boxers fitted with Michelin rubber.
Tyre pressure management system (TPMS) Wheely-Safe Light has been installed on 90 Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust emergency vehicles after proving its worth during extensive trials earlier this year.
