Strathclyde 4x4 Response

We are the West of Scotland Team of the 4x4 Response Network. We provide experienced volunteer off road drivers to assist the emergency and public services in times of need. The severe winter conditions seen in 2009/2010 and again in 2010/2011 have seen many teams active.

We want to give a special shout to Andrew Bryce, chairman of the voluntary charity Tayside 4x4 Response. Andrew and his #L200 is helping support the NHS, Police & local authorities following a significant 2ft snowfall and overnight temperatures of minus 19 degrees!

The team of volunteers have been supporting district nurses get out to vulnerable patients, taking patients to hospital for vital treatment such as dialysis, taking vital hospital staff to and from work and delivering prescriptions, along with many other tasks. All with an aim is to make sure that the most vulnerable people in the community are looked after in extreme conditions.

Andrew said "The #L200 has been unstoppable and having the heated seats has made the journey comfortable for any passenger!'

Again a massive well done to the team on their excellent and vital work ❤🚙💪

We have had a very busy week! We have been helping our friends at Tayside 4x4 Response deal with Beast from the East 2 around Dundee and Perth.
Thanks to support from Foundation Scotland , we were able to invest in BroadNet Communications which enabled both sets of Responders to communicate with each other securely, and enabled the two Controllers to operate remotely (one based on the Isle of Skye).
We were also able to invest in Sanitisation equipment to let us fit sneeze screens and buy a Fogger to ensure our volunteers own vehicles were safe before and after deployment. Thank you to Plover Hygiene for their help and support. BroadNet
