Sozo Medical Rescue and Training is a company which has been formed to meet the Emergency Medical response and First Aid training requirements of the Montagu community.
We are a small community that is not always able to access qualified emergency care when it is needed. The rationale behind the company is to provide Rapid Emergency Medical response, assessment and treatment of any medical emergency that could arise. Whilst we can not at this stage offer transport to the healthcare facilities, the addition of an ambulance for this purpose is already in the planning.
The service is offered on a subscription basis to the community of Montagu and Ashton and the surrounding farms, businesses and factories. Due to the nature of emergency response, we do not guarantee response times but an average time from callout to arrival of the unit should not exceed 10 minutes.
We will offer the service within a 20 minute radius of Montagu itself. This limitation is necessary to allow us to achieve a realistic response and treatment outcome.
The service covers any medical emergency experienced by a member. Members of a signed up household will be covered anywhere within the 20 minute radius stipulation.
Sozo has a fully intermediate life support ambulance. The member's monthly fee will include response but exclude any medical supplies utilised. Hotels or B&B's, factories and farms will be covered up to the number of persons stipulated below. Individual packages can be tailored for higher or seasonal number increases.
