Airwave Solution to improve staff safety


Yorkshire Ambulance Service is to enhance the safety of its front line staff with new technology from Airwave, the public safety communications provider. Over 900 front line staff are being equipped with Omniguard, a personal safety solution which provides active monitoring of their wellbeing when working alone or in potentially threatening situations.  Omniguard is designed for use with the new Airwave radio service currently being deployed to all ambulance trusts - importantly, this means there is no need to equip staff with an additional device, and Trusts can be assured of high levels of coverage and reliability.
