By Newsdesk Bury


Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) is to acquire an extra rapid response vehicle after a successful bid for funding.

The medical charity, which provides emergency response across the county, has received £40,000 after bidding for a share of a £250,000 pot - offered up to charities by The County Air Ambulance HELP Appeal.

Ben Hall, SARS operations manager, said: "Volunteers currently respond to more than 300 call-outs a year and the new vehicle will enable us to expand our activity and help more patients."

"A SARS team usually consists of an anaesthetist or consultant in emergency medicine and a paramedic who is experienced in critical care.

"Our responders carry equipment and have specialist skills, which enable them to make advanced procedures that would not normally be possible outside the hospital environment.

"These can be truly life-saving interventions and this service is offered without charge.”
