Have your say

East Midland’s Ambulance Service’s vehicles have been awarded with the Van Excellence accreditation.

Van Excellence is a nationally recognised, transport industry led initiative to enhance standards.

To successfully be awarded the Van Excellence accreditation Emas vehicles underwent an audit which included vehicle inspections to assess roadworthiness, risk analysis, load requirements, driver and passenger protection and speed limiters.

Head of fleet services Steve Farnsworth said: “We are the second ambulance service in the country to be awarded the Van Excellence and are proud of all involved in making that happen.”
