Air Rescue 24 are presented with YDS Boots

The first UK multi-agency advanced level medical search & rescue service, Air Rescue 24 has been kitted out with YDS rescue boots donated to help the service get established. 


With the aim to significantly enhance the existing emergency service provision Air Rescue 24 is currently all charity funded and brings a helicopter and land support vehicles together for use by a firefighter and rescue medic team working together and sharing vehicles for the first time.  The organisation is currently operating in the Cheshire and Merseyside region but hopes to take the concept to a national level.


Current fire boot suppliers to the North West region of the UK, Goliath Footwear with technical footwear brand YDS, were approached to support the organisation which is entirely funded by charitable means.  The lightweight and versatile Linewalker GTX GORE-TEX® boot was selected to see the team through all weathers, with a slip resistant and fuel oil resistant outsole and super quick release zip feature.


Paul West, Chief Executive Officer of Air Rescue 24 ‘the response team could be called out to any situation urban or rural so we are delighted that YDS could contribute good quality GORE-TEX® safety footwear for our doctors, firefighters and specialist volunteers.’


Steve Hall, Sales and Marketing Director is keen to support the new approach for emergency response ‘our association with Air Rescue 24 reflects our determination to develop and give the best quality footwear for all professionals in the emergency services.  We hope the project is a great success.’
