We operate an Audi A6 Allroad for our Stage Safety Unit. This gives us an estate vehicle with plenty of room to carry all the equipment and the crew easily. Being an allroad we have the ability to use All Wheel Drive which is useful when operating in a forest environment or loose surface event.
The vehicle carries a full warning light package to enable us when having to travel the scene of an incident quickly. We also carry a PA system for when operating Safety Car duties. The lighting package also enables us to be seen when protecting an incident scene.
The equipment carried is listed in the current MSA Year Book or as its known the Blue Book. This lists out the minimum amount of equipment that must be carried when operating as a Stage Safety Unit. This list is a minimum list and we where necessary we will carry more equipment of more of an item as deemed needed for the event that we are covering.
When at the incident scene if needed the crew can rapidly start casualty assessments and monitoring and provide any initial first aid that is required. Passing information back to the Rescue Unit the crew can begin to form a plan of action ready for when they reach the scene.
The vehicle carries
Fire Extinguishers in both Powder and AFFF varieties.
A range of Communication options to enable links to event HQ and other services such as Rescue.
A fully equipped medical response kit, including oxygen.
