The St John members have been assisting round the clock since Friday morning assisting front line emergency crews to get to areas which have been inaccessible with normal road ambulances.
James Shaughnessy, Director of Operations for St John Wales said “The main problem has been dealing with the road conditions due to the severe weather, the main roads are pretty clear but the side roads are still treacherous” he said.
“We have been supporting the paramedics, nurses and control staff in getting to and from work as well as transferring them to and from emergency call-outs.”
The first aid charity has its own fleet of over 100 ambulances across Wales including twenty 4x4 vehicles which provide regular backup support to the NHS during busy periods.
St John will continue to assist the NHS throughout this difficult period and will have members on duty throughout the weekend ensuring that the communities of Wales receive high quality care despite the terrible conditions.
