Emergency One Apprenticeship Programme

Apprenticeship at Emergency One

Get into Vehicle Engineering

The Recent economic impacts from Covid-19 have left many of Scotland’s Youth unable to secure employment, now more than ever it is important to support our youth.

We have teamed up with The Prince’s Trust Scotland to provide a free, short course where young persons between 16-19 will gain industry skills and training, complete a work placement and be guaranteed an interview for an engineering apprenticeship. The course, which lasts two weeks, grows in popularity each year with 40 young people from Ayrshire attending the previous ‘Get into Engineering’ day. During the course attendees learn various skills and suitable workplace behaviours in order to better prepare themselves for their interviews. They are also informed on what job roles would be available and what life would be like as an engineering apprentice.

After the course in completed, all of the young people who were successful in securing an apprenticeship are supplied with a tool kit funded by a Prince’s Trust Development Award to ensure that they have everything they need to start their career. In the last few years, Ayrshire College has been brought in as the apprenticeship trainer, with the apprentices attending day release throughout their time in work. This allows the apprentices to gain work experience as well as furthering their academic learning in relation to their trade. To be in with the chance of gaining an apprenticeship here at Emergency One all you have to do is leave your details HERE 

Morgan Middlemiss, Operations Manager, The Prince’s Trust said: “It’s vital that we work with local businesses to provide opportunities for our young people. Our partnership with Emergency One is a fantastic example of how we can combine our expertise to support young people in learning skills, building their confidence and in gaining experience and opportunity to secure sustainable employment.”

The Prince’s Trust and Emergency One have worked together for a number of years providing young people with the opportunity to learn the valuable skills needed to complete their trade. The apprenticeship course lasts four years and works alongside Ayrshire college. The mix between working in a successful manufacturing/engineering setting and gaining further education provides our apprentices with the foundation they need to start a career in the industry. Some of the Board of Directors have come up through this apprenticeship programme, including Production Director, Brian Girvan.

Brian Girvan, Production Director of emergency one said: “I started with Emergency One at the age of 16 as an apprentice coachbuilder, after a four-year apprenticeship I continued to focus on my trade, work hard and develop my skills, which has resulted in me now being a director within the company. None of which would have been possible without having the opportunity to take part in this apprenticeship programme.”

The Trust has helped over one million young people to date and supports thousands of young Scots each year.. The benefits from this partnership are evident through the praise of those that have been involved. Last year eight new apprentices directly benefitted from this program in many ways, including gaining new skills, becoming more confident individuals, and giving them a good start in life. Aran Chidwick, 20, Mechanical fitter stated “I passed my trade, I have my own car and will soon have my own house. None of this would have been possible if I never got involved with The Prince’s Trust and Emergency One apprenticeship programme.”

The eDraulic Watertight Extrication Tools offer the usual powerful performance, high speed and proven safety of LUKAS rescue tools combined with the technological innovations of an axial piston pump, an electromagnetic service valve and a brushless motor. In addition, there is Lukas’ latest innovation: All eWXTs are liquid-protected rescue tools that enable operations in heavy rain, flood or even under water. Every single technical component has been made waterproof on its own.

Therefore, all eWXTs fulfil the protection class IP 58 and can be used for up to 1 hour at a water depth of 3m. The series includes the waterproof rescue battery with 5 Ah or 9 Ah battery, both equipped with the longest operating time in the industry. This can even be replaced under water if necessary.


  • All technical components have been made watertight
  • All eWXT tools meet the IP 58 protection class
  • Can be operated for up to 1 hour at a water depth of 3 m under water


  • Lower noise emission
  • More compact design: thus, shorter overall working tool


  • Reduced working noise and longer life
  • More torque and more power – with smaller dimensions
  • Less susceptible mechanical parts
  • Less energy consumption and thus longer tool runtime with one battery charge
  • Electronic speed control ensures that the working speed of the unit remains constant up to the maximum load


  • Watertight 5 Ah battery, watertight 9 Ah battery: most powerful on the world market
  • Improved handling of the slide-in or locking mechanism
  • Both batteries are equipped with the longest operating time in the industry
  • Can also be replaced under water if required


  • Usual star knob valve with very easy handling

R 520 eWXT

The LUKAS rescue rams not only impress with a convincing lifting power, a particularly firm grip thanks to the “claw geometry” and a particularly long stroke, they can also be used flexibly. For example, our telescopic rescue cylinders are available in three different lengths, which can be used as required. The R 520 eWXT has a minimum retracted height and can therefore be used with even the smallest insertion opening. Its claw technology bites into any material and in any position. The small giant is waterproof like the entire eWXT range and is equipped with a 5 Ah or 9 Ah rescue battery. The 9 Ah battery offers the longest operating time in the industry.

S 788 eWXT

The S 788 eWXT is the successor to the S 788 E2. Our thousandfold proven all-rounder among the cutting machines. With the new eWXT product range, this cutter also benefits from the “Fresh-Up”. With less weight, a more compact design with identical power values, the balance of the rescue system has been significantly improved once again. The S 788 eWXT is also a fluid-protected cutter. Operations in heavy rain, floods or even under water are no problem, because it is waterproof. Matching the series are the 5 Ah or 9 Ah rescue batteries with the longest operating time in the industry.

SP 555 eWXT

The LUKAS SP 555 eWXT is the light middle class with unlimited power. Lifting loads, spreading material and peeling and pulling is no problem because handling has been improved by reducing weight. Due to squeeze plates, which are directly integrated into both spreader arms, there is no compromise for any material. The “Shark-Tooth-Tips” also provide the right grip and prevent any slipping. But that’s not all, because the SP 555 eWXT is a liquid-protected rescue system. Operations in heavy rain, floods or even under water are no problem because it is waterproof. The series includes the 5 Ah or 9 Ah rescue battery with the longest operating time in the industry.
