Woodway support Midlands Air Ambulance Charity

Woodway have been working together with the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity and finding ways to support the community. As the charity covers the largest air ambulance operating area in England, it is imperative the expert aircrew can rely on the very best vehicles to swiftly reach, and subsequently treat those in critical need of pre-hospital care.

The charity took delivery of a fleet of three BMW X5 rapid response vehicles (RRVs) to complement air operations. The three Authority specification BMW X5 vehicles are situated at the organisation’s three airbases – RAF Cosford in Shropshire, Tatenhill airfield in Staffordshire, and Strensham Services on the M5 in Worcestershire. Already in action, the new cars are deployed if a helicopter is grounded, for example during the hours of darkness or a period of particularly bad weather.

Becky Steele, air operations manager for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity added “Our medical crews are trained to the highest standard and these high-tech vehicles complement our operations perfectly. Thanks to their capability and the kit on board, they are already enabling us to save even more lives across the region.”

As well as the above products donated by Woodway, we also helped supply the BMW X5's with Sirens, ION T-Series and more. Midlands Air Ambulance are independently funded so do not get any government funding, and rely mainly on donations, which helps them to continue the great work they do in the Midlands area.
