MG6 proves worth for life-saving duties
The vehicle has been supplied to volunteers for FastAid, a group of highly-trained Community First Responders who support West Midlands Ambulance Service by attending 999 calls in their area.
The MG6 GT has been kitted out with a distinctive diamond grade livery to provide high-visibility, even at night, while the interior features an ambulance service radio and carries a vital automated external defibrillator. The cargo space in the MG6 GT fastback is also being put to use to carry specialist equipment.
The FastAid MG6 will mainly operate in the greater Birmingham and Solihull areas of the West Midlands where the charity was set up eight years ago.
Andy Jeynes, the West Midlands Ambulance Service community response manager, said: ‘We are extremely grateful to the MG Sales Centre for supplying the MG6. It’s already proved its worth on several call-outs when the speed of response, and being able to arrive on scene with the right kit, is crucial.
‘Without the support of local companies and organisations, such as the MG Sales Centre, we wouldn't be able to keep doing what we do in our local communities.’
Simon Bennett, a sales executive at the MG Sales Centre in Lowhill Lane, Longbridge, added: ‘We’re very proud that our local community first responders are saving lives in one of our cars. It’s about giving something back to the community we live in and we hope that our support helps FastAid to continue the excellent work it does.’
