Scheme Car

The Ettington CFR Scheme car is a 2004 Ford Mondeo 2.0 litre that previously saw service as a fast response vehicle with West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS).  The car serves us well, and containing as it does a 2-way radio and tracking system that links with the WMAS Emergency Operations Centre is at the very core of how we operate.  We have to obey speed limits and cannot use our strobe light when in motion but the highly visible 'Battenburg' livery is still an asset - especially along with the strobe light when parked on scene; it helps confirm to an ambulance crew that they have arrived at the right place, and in the dark the flickering of the strobe light can be seen from a long way off.
