Sustainable Ambulance with Alexis Percival
Tuesday 29 June, 2pm AEST
CAA is committed to working with the ambulance sector towards a more sustainable future and has created the CAA Sustainability Strategy as the first step in our goal for #sustainableambulance. In 2020 we heard from Sally Mangan from Ambulance Victoria on their plans in our first sustainability webinar. This time we look forward to Alexis Percival sharing the agenda of decarbonisation in the ambulance service in the UK.
Alexis is the Environmental and Sustainability Manager for Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust based in Yorkshire, UK. She started as the first Sustainability Manager for an ambulance service in the country in 2009. She is in charge of the carbon management and reduction programme implementing awareness schemes, rolling out a carbon champion scheme and installing innovative low carbon technologies across the estate. Alexis has worked on developing low to zero-emission ambulances with innovative low carbon fleet technologies. She is facilitating the roll out the EV charging infrastructure for the ambulance service fleet on ambulance service sites as well as working with civic and other healthcare partners to ensure that additional infrastructure is implemented to support the service. She is also investigating the challenges of decarbonising the ambulance service through renewable technologies, Net Zero ambulance station design, phasing out of Entonox and looking at alternative models of care.
Alexis has over 20 years of experience in the environmental field as an environmental consultant working on large national and international projects in the UK as well as Brazil, Germany, Mozambique and Australia. She took a career break and spent 3 years driving around the world in an ex-military ambulance, travelling overland to Australia and then travelling around South America.
