Arrive Alive launches vehicle to save lives in Warwickshire

ARRIVE Alive funds lifesaving voluntary operated 999 vehicles and equipment for West Midlands Ambulance Service Community First Responder groups. The latest addition to the Arrive Alive fleet of lifesaving vehicles will be based in Warwickshire and will be operated by Warwickshire Hearts.

The vehicle was handed over following a launch sponsored and hosted by one of Arrive Alive’s charity partners, Field to Fork based in Wootton Wawen. The vehicle also bears the logo of Henley in Arden-based Johnsons Coaches who are a proud supporter of the lifesaving work Arrive Alive carries out within communities, Arrive Alive is also the nominated charity of Johnsons Coaches for a second year.

Helen Gregory from Warwickshire Hearts said:

“As a community first responder, receiving a new car isn’t just about transportation; it’s a beacon of hope, enabling us to reach those in need faster and more efficiently, turning moments of crisis into opportunities for compassion and support. Arrive Alive has been that beacon of hope.”

The latest vehicle is the twelfth voluntary operated 999 vehicle to be launched by Arrive Alive. The initial goal by the founder of Arrive Alive was to fund one vehicle as a thank-you following her daughter’s illness, but demand is great, and more vehicles are needed. Arrive Alive is funded by donations which means vehicles can only become operational when the funds are available, the more vehicles that are funded by Arrive Alive means more lives can be saved within communities.

Debbie Roscoe, Founder of Arrive Alive said:

“I would personally like to thank the incredible Field to Fork for hosting the launch of our latest voluntary operated 999 vehicle. I massively appreciate the support of everyone who has helped to grow Arrive Alive into what it is today, also a huge thank you to everyone who attended the launch of the latest vehicle you made the day very special.

“The Arrive Alive team are thrilled to support Warwickshire Hearts with a brand-new responder vehicle.

“Unfortunately following the launch my youngest daughter, Ellie who is the reason behind Arrive Alive’s lifesaving work had a severe hypo which resulted in her becoming unconscious.

“I cannot thank Helen Gregory from Warwickshire Hearts enough who was on hand to take control of the situation along with West Midlands Ambulance Service.

“I am pleased to say Ellie is a lot better and is doing well. Let’s get some more cars onto the roads and into communities as it could be any one of us at any time who needs emergency medical assistance.”
