Safety helmets protecting the life savers

24 Nov 2020

We are all aware of the fantastic life-saving work carried out by the UK’s Air Ambulances when there’s a life-threatening injury or medical emergency.

Thames Valley Air Ambulance (TVAA) is no exception, relying on the skill and bravery of its team of doctors and critical care paramedics - some of the most highly skilled pre-hospital medics in the world - to deliver advanced trauma care to some of the most seriously injured patients across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire from its base at RAF Benson.

Such exceptional individuals, who regularly put their own safety on the line to protect others, need the highest levels of equipment performance, including their head protection PPE, to ensure that their wellbeing is never compromised.

Vimpex Business Development Manager Steve Clelland explains, “When TVAA’s Helicopter Emergency Medics (HEMS) became concerned  about their current helmet due to its obsolescence and poor comfort, the charity contacted Vimpex who they were aware had successfully supplied helmet solutions to other Air Ambulance Services, including Lincolnshire and Kent.“



Following meetings to identify product performance requirements, and a product trial by critical care paramedics and doctors, TVAA chose the Pacific R6C Paramedic/Rescue Helmet because it gives the charity a high performing future proofed solution that can also be fully customized. Every 

part of the helmet can be quickly and easily removed without the use of special tools. Cost of ownership is therefore minimized as repairs and replacement of all components is simple. Pacific helmets are tested in the most extreme conditions required for conformity to relevant 

clauses of the latest EN standards.

Vimpex is Europe's leading independent manufacturer and distributor of high quality fire evacuation and alarm system products for installers, distributors and OEM manufacturers. The company is also a specialist in the supply of technical rescue and PPE equipment for UK fire, rescue, police, military and emergency services teams.
