East Midlands Ambulance Service will unveil the first of 29 new ambulances today.
The vehicles are fitted with enhanced emergency lighting and are part of a five-year investment plan.
They are also installed with new satellite navigation systems to help with getting to emergencies as quickly as possible.
A significant amount of time and effort has gone into making sure these vehicles are the best they can be. Frontline colleagues have provided feedback on our previous models which has been instrumental in the design changes on our 15 plate range.
A lot of attention has been given to the durability of the vehicles. At the end of their shift, our crews go home and rest before their next shift; that's not the same for our vehicles, with the majority being out on the road 24/7.
Our ambulances cover hundreds of miles every day and get a lot of wear and tear which is why it is so important that they are fit for purpose and safe for our staff and patients.
