Could your old IT equipment help The Air Ambulance save lives?

Posted: 26/03/20 by The Air Ambulance Service

You may have heard of the local air ambulance, or seen them in the sky. You may even know someone they’ve helped. But there’s something you might not realise – they wouldn’t be able to run this lifesaving service without the support of people like you.

Every single penny of their operating costs is given by local people and local companies like you. Your old equipment could help them get off the ground. They are literally lifted in the air by partnerships like yours.

They want to help you meet your corporate social responsibility requirements, by offering an environmentally friendly way to dispose of your outdated and redundant IT, all while generating money for charity and maintaining a positive public profile.

They are able to collect, data-wipe and recycle your redundant computers, laptops and IT equipment. They can ensure you are safe in the knowledge that your equipment has been wiped to MoD standards using Blancco binary data wiping software (with full CESG approval to InfoSec level 5). This makes sure that any sensitive information is permanently disposed of, while enabling your company to reduce your carbon footprint and take the steps to become greener.

The Air Ambulance Service care about the environment and are able to recycle to ISO standards, giving your company full reassurance that you have recycled responsibly. For them, it is of paramount importance that all your sensitive data is wiped, ensuring data protection compliance and reducing the risk of identity theft. They fully asset-track your equipment using their unique scanning system, which will give you a complete and comprehensive report into the equipment’s disposal journey.

Most recyclers will charge you for this service but they know how valuable their supporters are to their lifesaving service. That’s why they go above and beyond for their partnerships offering to collect your equipment, wipe and give you full reports completely free of charge. You can relax in the knowledge that you have saved money, saved the planet and helped save more lives.
