Wyton Hand Over First Responders Vehicle EEAST

Smarter Metering Services Limited and its sister company Gas Emergency UK Limited has donated a fully operational rapid response vehicle to the RAF Henlow military co-responders who support EEAST’s teams.

 

Tom Ward, CEO at Smarter Metering, said: “We are proud to be able to support these responders and allow them to reach more people in need and continue their incredible work, which is all completely voluntary.”

 

Tom Abell, Chief Executive of EEAST, said: “We are incredibly grateful for this generous donation. This vehicle will save lives in the east of England.  

 

“The support provided by private companies such as Smarter Metering Services Limited and Gas Emergency UK Limited is crucial to helping our military co-responders respond to emergencies in the local community quickly.  

 

“These volunteers are a really important part of our team and play a vital role by supporting our EEAST crews to make sure people get the help they need as quickly as possible.”

 

The two companies have also donated a vehicle to our colleagues at Basics Essex, whose voluntary paramedics and doctors work with our crews, as part of their ongoing drive to support charities and non-profit groups.
