We regret to inform you of potential delays in fulfilling orders for our Cruciform® Triage System, as of Friday 21st March with respect to the COVID19 outbreak.
Until this date we can continue to guarantee a maximum of 5 days lead time (longer as usual on high-volume orders), but due to potential staffing issues at our warehouse lead times for delivery of Cruciform may increase. This is due in part to the fact that Cruciform® products must be hand assembled along with the current unprecedented demand.
Specific Product notes
- Cruciform® Triage System, 3-5 days lead time until 21st March, after which date, longer lead times are possible
- Cruciform® Hospital / Patient Evacuation System, 7-10 days lead time
- All Log Book Products , 2-3 days lead time
This includes our EPLB© LogBooks which are now available within normal expected lead times All other products can be fulfilled and delivered per our usual terms.
Although we have the capacity to meet virtually any demand, we anticipate this situation will continue for the next few months so lead times may be a little longer than usual. We therefore encourage our customers to order from us early rather than last-minute. This is especially the case for customers in Emergency Service or Resilience provision.
As always, you can continue to rely on CWC Services. Please get in touch with us should you have any questions, enquiries or feedback about our products. And follow us on twitter to keep up with the latest news from us.
It is with great sadness we inform you that the founder of CWC Services, Carl Wallin, died peacefully on the morning of 3rd August 2018.
During his 3 year battle with cancer, Carl remained an active consultant with the company, alongside pursuing personal projects. Alongside, he travelled across Scandinavia and also self-published a body of poetry, a quiet ambition that he was proud to fulfil.
Carl spent the majority of his working life dedicated to emergency management and response. After many years with the UK's ambulance services, Carl formed CWC Services with the vision to build products and services that would improve emergency processes, saving lives and improving efficiency. Key among these products were the Cruciform® Triage system and a range of specialist log books including the Emergency Log Book and the Pocket Log Book range. The products arose from Carl's willingness to share and co-create best practices in order to save lives and improve verifiability for individuals and organisations.
We proudly continue to represent Carl's vision and celebrate the life of our kind and gentle friend who was full of creative energy and zeal for what was to come next. We are sure many of you also had the great pleasure of knowing Carl and would like to invite you to leave messages of condolence or memories on this remembrance page.
It is impossible to express in words the spirit that Carl has been in our lives. An everyday business relationship that quickly developed into a deep friendship; laughs a plenty, long conversations and a genuine sense of the kindred. Our dear friend Carl, you are and will continue to be sorely missed.

Product improvements and changes
Over the past three years, we’ve refined our products with GS1 barcodes across the range and made improvements to the FirstAidForm pad. This year has seen the following changes to our product lineup:
- Our Emergency Pocket Log Book© (EPLB) now includes JESIP model aide memoirs at the rear of the book as requested by many of our customers. We’re considering their inclusion in our other softcover logbooks as well, subject to feedback and requests.
- We’re in the process of developing a Fire & Rescue Decision and Rationale Log Book, designed especially for Fire & Rescue services nationwide.
- Our Cruciform® Triage card has had numerous refinements for its latest production run, including white text on the red/green faces, for improved night-time visibility and UV responsiveness, and a raft of small layout improvements to the various modules. It is also now available off-the-shelf in the French language.
- Our Emergency Log Book© (ELB) has had many small refinements to the areas at the front and rear of the book. Main logging pages remain unchanged.
We’d like to draw your attention to the following recent additions to our product lineup:
- The Cruciform® Evacuation System, developed with the West Kent Emergency Planning Team, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust. Designed originally for patient evacuation from hospitals, it is applicable in a variety of situations where there is a need for controlled mass evacuation of people, planned or unplanned. The system would be appropriate as part of an organisation’s disaster recovery or resilience planning strategy
- EDIS©, a smartphone-based electronic system for track and trace of people and other items. Designed to work with GS1 barcodes across our product range, the system has been developed as a working prototype and could provide exciting benefits in First Response, Emergency Management and Mass Evacuation.
- LARCS© (in development), a simplified system based on Cruciform and GS1 barcodes, designed for registration, track/trace and mobilisation of people in evacuation, mass casualty or mass displacement scenarios. The system would be available for councils, local rest centres, community groups etc. for handling large scale people displacement and movement.
- The Duty Log & Occurrence Book© (DLOB) is a general purpose version of the Emergency Log Book, with similar specification but not specifically designed for medical or emergency medical use.
Please take a look at our website product pages for detailed information about these and all our products. LARCS is not featured on our website just yet but we would welcome any enquiries and interest. We also invite you to bookmark our news page and follow us on twitter to keep up to date with the latest at CWC Services.
As we have done for over 25 years, CWC Services will continue to develop peerless, internationally recognised emergency documentation products/systems and we keenly welcome any enquiry or feedback.
In the meantime we would like to wish all our customers a wonderful Christmas, a happy New Year and we look forward to your continued business in 2018!
