Meet the Logistics Team
At Middlesex London Paramedic Service (MLPS), our dedicated Logistics Team works tirelessly behind the scenes, 24/7, to support our frontline Paramedics who provide top tier pre-hospital care to the communities they serve in.
Logistics Technicians (LT):
The Logistics Technicians routinely inspect, clean and restock all vehicles, bags and bins, to have them ready for the next shift of paramedics going out to respond to emergency calls.
They perform routine maintenance on all equipment, such as cardiac monitors, power stretchers, stair chairs, scoop stretchers, oxygen equipment, suction equipment, glucometers, extraction devices and other patient care equipment.
They are such an integral part of operations here at MLPS, not only for the 911 Response System but they provide support behind special events held throughout the year.
