Focaccia Group: first ambulance of a fleet delivered to Sanitaservice
Focaccia delivers a first new ambulance to Sanitaservice Srl: the vehicles will be equipped with the FG MICRO H2O2 sanitising system developed by the company
Focaccia Group delivers the first ambulance of a new fleet to Sanitaservice Srl, the Brindisi-based company in which ASL (local health authority) has a stake
The rescue vehicle is the first of 35 acquired by the company through a public tender.
In the same competition, Sanitaservice also acquired seven ambulances.
The new vehicles will be used in the ambulance stations and first intervention points of the 118 Emergency Service located in the province of Brindisi.
The delivery of the other ambulances, which will be individually tested, is scheduled to take place in the next few days.
In addition, training courses have been started for the personnel who will work on board the new vehicles.
Thanks to the new ambulances on their way, 198 drivers/rescue workers and 165 rescue workers will be employed.
These are workers currently belonging to contracted associations who will become employees of Sanitaservice as of 1 January 2023.
“Sanitaservice is a great reality of our territory,” said the sole administrator Maria Rosa Di Leo, “dynamic and flexible, which is now able to offer the Brindisi local health authority numerous services such as assistance to people and health support.
“Now, finally,” Di Leo concludes, “the 118 transport service is also entrusted directly to our company: the aim is to guarantee an increasingly efficient response.”
Focaccia Group, sanitising the sanitary compartment as a health garrison for patient and rescuer
The 35 incoming ambulances are fitted with equipment that improves the quality of the service.
Starting with a sanitising system designed and built in-house at the Focaccia Group, which by saturation sanitises both the driver’s compartment and the sanitary compartment.
The advantage of the latter is that it can be activated without the need for the vehicle to return to base, with a considerable time and labour advantage.
In addition, the air conditioning system has an antibacterial filter based on photocatalytic technology.
The vehicles, for their part, are equipped with a mechanical chest compression system, which makes it possible to overcome the difficulties of manual compression for patients who need it.
Finally, there is a motorised ascending chair in each vehicle.
The ambulances are also equipped according to more functional criteria and are fitted with systems for paediatric immobilisation and transport.
Sanitaservice has signed a contract with the supplier company that provides for the coverage of all incidental costs and risks: from ordinary and extraordinary maintenance to the provision of replacement vehicles in the event of breakdown.
