When the Helicopter is offline -- either at night when it is too dangerous to land in London, or if there are dangerous weather conditions -- the operation is supported by a rapid response car team which ensures 24 hour care to London.
The rapid response cars carry the same medical team who attend the same incidents and carry out the same medical procedures on scene.
The Rapid Response team is equipped with a substantial range of drugs, emergency surgical kits, monitors and other equipment 'a mini Accident & Emergency Department (A&E) of their own' so that they can begin treatment straight away.
London's Air Ambulance has six Skoda Octavias. All cars are equipped with blue lights, high visibility strips and badges to identify the car as part of the London's Air Ambulance fleet. Blue Light Drivers at London's Air Ambulance undergo a five day training course under blue light conditions..
