During his journey to Rouen, Jason looked in the rear view mirror and saw a Police car with flashing lights. Jason’s mind was going over time (am I speeding? am I on the wrong side of the road?) so he pulled over out of his way. However the Police car did not pass Jason, instead it pulled in behind him. By this point Jason is panicking (is it all the cheap fags and booze I got in the trunk!). The Policeman got out of his car approached Jason and said:

Look out for a Packexe SMASH advert and article in the Fire Magazine entitled ‘Hampshire Fire & Rescue, All front-line appliances will soon contain Packexe SMASH’. Malcolm Freemantle, Equipment Officer and Procurement, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service, says: "The time factors relating to vehicle preparation at RTCs prior to cutting operations can now be significantly reduced due to the new protocols adopted by Hampshire with the introduction of Packexe SMASH. Time is a crucial factor in tackling RTCs." Malcolm continues by saying, "The product allows our staff far more flexibility in the dynamic risk assessment of glass at RTCs, allowing us to take into account vehicle orientation and casualty position".

6th – 7th July, The Fire Service College, Moreton-In-Marsh, Gloucestershire, UK

Attending the Ambulex event provided us a great opportunity to talk to individuals from the UK Ambulance Service. The interest and feedback of Packexe SMASH was fantastic, it was great to hear that some Ambulance Services around the UK have seen the product in action with their local Fire and Rescue Service. We also found it a great opportunity to observe and receive updates of what is happening within this emergency service.

In addition to the actual event, the location was perfect for Packexe SMASH. Being at The Fire Service College in Moreton-In-Marsh, Gloucestershire gave us the opportunity to catch up with and talk to Fire Fighters around the world for example Dubai and Holland, who are currently on a course at the College.
