Flight Medic UK today demonstrated its commitment to the safety and well being of their team members when on international repatriations. Operations Director, Nick Ginnever said
“Flight Medic UK have harnessed the power of the Delorme InReach satellite tracking device to allow our team to keep in constant touch with the office wherever they are in the world. The Delorme InReach also allows the Flight Medic UK office to track the medic, allowing the office based team to provide our clients with real-time location updates, along with allowing staff to communicate via satellite back to the office via email or text message. Some of the locations our team members visit during the course of their work have unreliable cellular (mobile telephone) coverage and therefore this gives us a highly reliable and robust communications tool.
The Delorme InReach also has an “SOS” function which allows our team members to summons emergency help in the unlikely event that they are caught up in an unprecedented emergency situation such as a natural disaster.”
“We are pleased that the team of paramedics, including our Director of Finance and Governance will be taking this device to Nepal whilst they teach remote communities and work in a local hospital. The welfare of our team members is the most important thing to us as a company and the @DelormeGPS InReach helps us to achieve a high standard of safety.”
