At Bound Tree Medical we have a diverse range of ambulance clothing and accessories, everything you need to ensure that your staff are fully prepared. One of the most instantly recognisable elements that ambulance staff must wear is the high visibility jacket. It serves the primary purpose of making the emergency personnel visible whether this be to those who are in need of attention or in the darkness of a motorway or road. Our jackets come in a range of sizes from small to extra large, each with detailed measurements showing exactly what size you can expect. Ill-fitting clothes can be a hindrance in an emergency situation, so it is always important to be comfortable with plenty of freedom for movement. The Hi-Vis Ambulance Bomber Jacket must have EN471 Class 3 Reflexite Striping to ensure that lights reflect, making the wearer visible to drivers or searchers. As you would expect, a jacket like this is designed to be waterproof, keeping the wearer in the best condition to operate in difficult conditions. The Bonadex Waist Band, elasticated storm cuffs, zipped, waterproof pockets and fully taped seams all work to keep the wind and rain out.
Conditions are variable, which means that ambulance uniforms must be variable as well. The Hi-Vis Waistcoat builds on much of the success of the bomber jacket, but in a cut down form that is comfortable to wear when conditions don’t necessitate something as bulky. The short-sleeved design is intended to make it easy for you to work quickly. Of course, you might always encounter very cold temperatures, but this doesn’t mean you should sacrifice your staff’s protection or their comfort. The Hi-Vis Safety Fleece again makes use of the same reflective striping to ensure safety while also being extremely warm. They allow a fantastic degree of manoeuvrability enabling the wearer to get to work quickly and effectively.
Medical equipment for ambulance service people doesn’t stop at jackets. The One Piece Ambulance Coverall is a staple of the service, designed to keep the wearer comfortable and operating to maximum efficiency. With elasticated cuffs and waistbands and striping on the arms and legs, it has everything necessary to ensure safe, effective working, even if you have to sacrifice a jacket. Having maximum manoeuvrability is very important when working in strained conditions to provide emergency assistance. Without the best equipment like this, those extra seconds that could save someone’s life could be lost. Underestimating the impact of clothing like this can really have a knock-on effect that is devastating for all concerned.
Ambulance equipment also extends to other types of gear including Ambulance helmets. The Pacific A7A, for instance, is a great example of another piece of hi-vis kit, perfect for working on the roads or in dark areas where medical personnel need to be seen. The Kevlar® is lightweight and easy to work in while providing protection from numerous potential threats to the head. It could prove all of the difference when entering those harsh environments to rescue.
