UK SAS kits out Jumbulance with Ferno’s Pegasus trolleys


Private ambulance will now be able to take multiple casualties in comfort

UK Specialist Ambulance Service (UK SAS) has sealed a deal with Ferno to take delivery of 150 Pegasus trolleys for its specialist multi-casualty Jumbulances.

UK SAS offers the widest range of specialist vehicles for urgent and non-urgent transport journeys within the UK ambulance market. It is one of the largest private ambulance services in operation and carries out more than 250,000 contracted patient journeys each year for the NHS. The services are also used by private hospitals, healthcare facilities, event organisers and private individuals.

West Yorkshire-based Ferno has supplied the Pegasus trolleys with accessories including locks, mattresses and restraints for the Jumbulances, which will be used by UK SAS at sporting events, festivals  and any other occasions where there may be a need to treat multiple casualties at the same time. Four trolleys can fit inside one Jumbulance at any time in the specially-designed ward-style individual treatment bays that are fully equipped with defibrillators and suction.

Mick Byrne, owner and managing director of UK SAS, said: “The Pegasus trolley is the lightest lift-assist trolley available on the market, encompassing an effortless hydraulic lift and lower system and offering a load capacity of 200kg. The trolley is fully CEN compliant and designed for use on ramped or tail lift vehicles.

“It is an ideal product for the demanding needs of patients whilst ensuring the crews are comfortable and safe while maneuvering patients."
