NARU in the spotlight at Ambition 2016

The National Ambulance Resilience Unit (NARU) played a key role at Ambition Expo 2016 this year, cementing the organisation’s position as a vital part of the UK’s national resilience infrastructure.

Ambition Expo – the annual event dedicated to the UK’s growing Emergency Preparedness, Resilience and Response sector – took place at Olympia in London on 19 & 20 April 2016.
