Everdrone, a leading provider of autonomous drone solutions and Air Ambulance Charity Kent Surrey Sussex (KSS) are proud to announce an innovative collaboration to initiate implementation of Everdrone First on Scene Grid™ technology in the UK to help save lives in sudden medical emergencies.

The aim of the collaboration is to enable KSS to expand its lifesaving service to include drone delivery of time-sensitive vital medical equipment to scene as part of its rapid response capability, potentially transforming pre-hospital emergency healthcare across Kent, Surrey and Sussex, in order to save even more lives when every second counts towards survival.

Drones can significantly enhance the efficiency of emergency response services by delivering Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs), and other time-critical medical supplies, to scene faster than any ground unit, or in support of helicopter operations, while also providing visual situational awareness to the dispatch centre.

Leigh Curtis MBE, Executive Director of Service Delivery at KSS, says: “Our collaboration with Everdrone to initiate implementation of this technology is a first for an air ambulance charity in the UK. The technology is already making a viable difference to patient outcomes in other countries, so this is an important step in our ambition to help save the lives of even more people in communities across Kent, Surrey and Sussex.”

Everdrone CEO, Mats Sällström, says: “Everdrone is proud to be in collaboration with KSS to bring this new life-saving drone technology to the UK. We are working together towards successful implementation with KSS, a team of world-leading Helicopter Emergency Medical Service pioneers and key opinion leaders within pre-hospital emergency care.”
