Taxi cabs in Swindon now carry lifesaving emergency bandages thanks to Rapaid who have donated and distributed kits across Swindon.
The recent donation follows a successful campaign in Manchester and Oxford with hundreds of taxi cabs carrying emergency bandage kits. Each cab displays a Rapaid window sticker that clearly identifies to the public the cab has bandages available for the public in the event of serious trauma or a major incident.
Rapaid’s initiative has been given full support by Wiltshire Police and Swindon Borough Council.
Superintendent Phil Staynings Wiltshire Police said:
“The distribution of emergency bandages to taxis across the borough of Swindon could be the difference in saving someone’s life and we are pleased that the work of Rapaid could make a huge difference in communities.
“This is such a fantastic initiative by Alex Chivers the founder of Rapaid and Wiltshire Police are fully supportive of their work in our communities”.
