Fleet & Equipment
In addition to our staff recruitment and training activities, we also strategically invest in our vehicles and the equipment contained within, including regular servicing of the fleet and annual servicing of key ambulance equipment. This ensures that, under normal conditions of service, our PHECC registered EMT, Paramedic and Advanced Paramedic practitioners are suitably resourced to allow them to deliver optimal clinical care at all times.

Technology

Lifeline Ambulance is the first ambulance service to transfers all patient report forms to an electronic format. All engagement with ambulances from dispatch is now done electronically. We are the first ambulance company in Europe to operate a dedicated ambulance software system called Traumasoft.

This makes us the most advanced technologically in Ireland.

This significant investment also assists in our obsession with quality as check lists are now completed electronically and allow for immediate identification of any gaps.
