    Hello I'd like to propose a new building-like feature: an HEMS/Ambulance rendezvous point.


    As you may know, some hospitals that accept HEMS patients do not have a dedicated on-site helipad for air ambulances to land, instead the air ambulance will land at a designated rendezvous point, say a nearby park, where patients are transferred to land ambulance to complete transport to hospital. an example of this in my area is the Royal Gwent hospital in Newport, South Wales. in this case the helicopter lands in Tredegar Park at the edge of newport and transported the rest of the way by land.


    My suggestion would be a building like feature where you send the air ambulance and a land ambulance to meet before the land ambulance continues the journey. I propose this works in one of 3 ways:

    • The RVP will be linked to the designated hospital, so when you choose the hospital as the air ambulance's destination, it automatically flies to the RVP where an ambulance is automatically dispatched and then automatically moves drives to the hospital.
    • You have to specifically send the air ambulance to the RVP, which designated a hospital and the land ambulance (which is either automatically dispatched the RVP or the player has to dispatch one there) automatically makes it way to the hospital once the transfer is done.
    • You send the Air Ambulance and a land ambulance to the RVP from which you they choose the destination of the land ambulance.

    Obviously using which method is easiest or best to implement. [hopefully they make sense]
    The RVP would either have low cost to build, or be free to build. or could even be possible expansion for hospitals if that would work?


    This idea I think will bring even more realism to the game, since there's the extra strategic planning required make for a swift transfer, as well as the negating to potential issue of sending helicopters to those hospitals with no helipad for those of us players who try to keep it as real as possible.


    Sorry for such a long post but I many ideas regarding this, including a possible expansion for hospitals to have helipads, therefor HEMS can only be sent to helipad equipped hospitals - whic would also give the RVP suggestion even more of a reason to exist.


    I should probably stop now but I hope you consider these ideas. Cheers, Jordie.

    Thanks. These 2 solutions will be useful for some, but don't solve the issue I have. Excluding from ARRs really isn't the answer for me, as I still need them in the ARRs - they carry my CC trained staff. If I put JRUs in a custom category, then they become RRVs so no point having them. The whole benefit of them is they can also attend as a police car. The issue for me is they respond as an IRV when they cannot carry prisoners. The cleanest solution would be for the devs to reinstate the IRV category in ARRs and return the Police Car category to despatch any nearby police vehicle. I currently have all other police vehicles in a custom category so they can attend when I dont need them to transport prisoners (ie the 5th vehicle in the original example).

    OH, yes I understand your issue better now. My comment was only a suggestion for a potential work around, which I use to good effect.
    Have you tried having your IRVs in a custom category so only prisoner carrying capable IRVs respond to an IRV ARR. I agree this is a messy way of doing it, and that in the long term the devs should fix it but, for now, This is the way I do it and it works well once you work out set up correctly.


    I hope find a solution that works for you soon!

    Hello
    As far i know there are 2 easy fixes to this.
    First would be to exclude JRUs from ARRs
    alternatively if you and to be able to dispatch JRUs wit ARR,
    There is an ability to change the vehicle's category to a custom category. you can then also specify that the vehicle only responds to calls for said custom class (See attached picture). You can then ast up ARRs using the specified custom class (which will appear at the bottom of the list)
