As previously reported, the London Automobile Association (AA) organization had turned to Honda motorcycles to service their customers in the London area {link}. Fast response times were considered essential for the AA.

Now, the London Ambulance Service Open link in a new window announced that they have chosen Honda's versatile ST1300 Pan European motorcycle as their life-saving vehicle. And again, speed is off the essence. In medical emergencies, every second a medic is at the scene can mean the difference between life and death.

London Ambulance Service Honda Pan European
The organization have purchased 12 Pan European for their two-wheeled paramedics when they realized that nothing can beat a motorcycle in terms of response time when you need to get somewhere in a crowded and dense city. Equipped with life saving first response gear, a paramedic can arrive at the scene in minutes and start saving lives.

Shaun Rock of the London Ambulance Service said, “We looked at response times in congested areas of London twenty years ago and saw that motorcycles were the solution to getting a vehicle and paramedic on-scene as soon as possible. We needed to expand our two-wheeled operation so that we could ensure our response capability was compliant with new government response times. Our riding group evaluated a number of motorcycle models but, the Honda Pan European has met and exceeded our specifications over the past 18 years we feel it continues to do so. It is capable of carrying a large range of medical equipment and is perfect for our needs. It is capable of speed when required but also possesses the excellent low-speed maneuverability that we need in the congested areas of the capital. This is why we’ve chosen to further strengthen our existing fleet with twelve more Pan European motorcycles.”
 
The London Ambulance Service, the largest of its kind in the world, has 4000 staff working out of 70 stations in London. In total, there some 50 two-wheeled paramedics working for the Service.

Now if only other cities could see why it's better to use motorcycles, we'd be in a great shape. Apart from Ambulance, Fire, Police and Emergency Services using motorcycles, even business people and anyone needing to work in a big city is better off on a motorcycle.
