St John Ambulance volunteers and vehicles have been called into action across the country as heavy snow sweeps the UK.

‘We currently have over 80 vehicles and 160 volunteers providing support to the statutory ambulance services’ said Howard Rayner, Operations Support Adviser from St John Ambulance.

‘The majority of these vehicles are our 4x4 ambulances which are better able to cope with the treacherous conditions and we will continue to be there to support the communities in need for as long as we are needed.’

St John Ambulance responds to hundreds of local incidents and major accidents each year and plays a crucial role in supporting the emergency services when help is needed, for example at the summer floods of 2007 and the 7/7 attacks in London.
