Pontedera, 25 March 2022 - The three-wheeled scooter Piaggio MP3 Life Support used by the Italian Red Cross was presented at the 30th anniversary celebration of the Italian National Territorial Emergency Service (118).
In comparison with the classic Piaggio MP3, its equipment includes flashing LED lights and front sirens, an electric telescopic pole with a 360° flashing LED light and highly reflective stickers. In addition, the combination of the top box and side bags increases the load capacity to 142 litres, making it the ideal vehicle for easily transporting medical equipment for pre-hospital first aid, including BLS (Basic Life Support) and ALS (Advance Life Support), defibrillators, immobilization collars, dressing sets, oxygen cylinders, respiratory kits and infusion sets.
The Piaggio MP3 Life Support is already used by the national territorial emergency services of several countries, including the United Kingdom, France, Australia and especially Israel, which has made it a real feather in the cap of its First Aid fleet, with over 650 vehicles at its disposal.
From January 2017 to December 2021, paramedics riding MP3 “medi-cycle” scooters - on duty at the Jerusalem First Responders - carried out 9,223 interventions. MDAIS data (Magen David Adom in Israel), “Lifesaving Activity” report ( www.mdais.org/en). Image source: www.instagram.com/magen_david_adom.
The Piaggio MP3 Life Support supplied to the Italian Red Cross represents one of the first applications of this vehicle for emergency services in Italy, made possible thanks to amendments to the Highway Code converting DL121 at the end of 2021, which allow motorbikes to be used for first aid services (transport of medical personnel and medical equipment).
Thanks to the characteristic compact size, safety and stability of the Piaggio MP3 Life Support, intervention times are reduced, making a difference in first aid situations where time is of the essence.
