Emergency Transport Vehicle (ETV) Unit

Introducing Unmanned ETV: Reliable Medical Coverage for Remote Sites

In today's world, oil companies are facing increasing pressure to provide medical coverage on remote sites within a reasonable time frame.

To minimize the impact on patients during an emergency, the industry has adopted the "40 minute rule," which requires high hazard industrial sites that are more than 40 minutes away from a hospital for a two wheel drive ambulance to have a means of transportation that is clean, warm, and dry, fits a stretcher, and has a means of communication.

However, travel time to a location should not be the only factor considered when it comes to providing medical coverage. Possible delays such as railroad tracks, muddy conditions, road access, and construction must also be taken into account. In addition, the large majority of municipal ambulances are unable to access remote sites due to their distance and inaccessibility. That's where Unmanned ETV comes in.

Unmanned ETV units are the perfect solution for locations with lower hazard ratings, worker numbers, and travel distance to medical aid. Our ETV units exceed all Alberta OH&S requirements, equipped with a stretcher kit with three blankets, splinting kit, spinal immobilization kit, Alberta Level 3 First Aid kit, road radio (including AB Ambulance Channel), GPS tracking system with cellular to satellite capabilities, cell phone with booster, and high-quality all-weather tires. What's more, we offer additional equipment that can be added to our units, including Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) and STARS Zone Landing Kit. The AED gives workers onsite the potential to use an AED in the event of an emergency. Our STARS Zone Landing Kit helps to create a temporary landing zone for STARS air ambulance to land in. At Unmanned ETV, we understand that every second counts in an emergency. That's why we are the only company insured for ANY licensed driver, regardless of driver history, to be able to drive our vehicles in the event of an emergency. Our SEF5C insurance policy allows the attendant to provide lifesaving care in the back of the MTC and allowing any licensed driver on location to initiate transport to the hospital. This mitigates delays in transporting the patient and ensures prompt medical attention for the patient.

With Unmanned ETV, you can rest assured that your remote sites are equipped with reliable and professional medical coverage. Contact us today to learn more about our Unmanned ETV units and how they can benefit your project.
