EMERGENCY UNIT KIT
All emergency response teams serving fixed facilities frequented
by large numbers of the general public - such as trade fairs, race
tracks, airports, stations, camp sites and holiday resorts - can
now cut their response times with this version of the Skatework
equipped like a genuine ambulance, saving precious time and,
perhaps, lives. In this version, the medium load basket contains
the most important materials and equipment to resuscitate
patients and deliver first aid while waiting for medical personnel
to arrive on the scene.

reservoirs, cannula needles, saline solution, catheters,

- 2 litre oxygen bottle with oxygen mask

Where crowds of people block the way, the sheer size an
ambulance can often make it difficult for an emergency team
to reach the scene - and in an emergency, even a few minutes
can make the difference! With Skatework (using a vehicle for
each team member - in general, two vehicles are sufficient
to perform effective resuscitation), getting to the scene of the
event is much easier, with the emergency team arriving literally
centimetres away from the victim and starting first aid while
they wait for the ambulance to make its way through the crowd.
The vehicle may also be equipped with a buffer battery for
operating 12V medical devices such as a portable ventilator or
the LifePack semiautomatic defibrillator.
Skatework - a life-saving guardian angel for the unfortunate
