A new car has been donated to a group of Norfolk lifesaving volunteers, to help them continue their vital work.
Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS) which responds to medical emergencies in Norfolk, has just received the latest addition to its fleet.
The new Medic 23 has been donated by Smarter Metering Services, meaning more NARS critical care teams can respond to the people of Norfolk.
NARS, based in Dereham, attended more than 1,700 calls in 2020 and now has a team of around 40 volunteer doctors, nurses, critical care paramedics, and first responders.
Smarter Metering chief executive Tom Ward said: “I feel incredibly fortunate that we are in a position to support such a worthwhile cause.

"We will continue to provide support including the ongoing running and maintenance costs for the vehicle as well as keeping in touch to see the good this will bring to the community and the individuals NARS will be able to help using this vehicle”.
The vehicle has been operational and already attended over 10 critical care calls in a week.
