2013 American Emergency Vehicles Ambulance
The current 6359 is a 2013 American Emergency Vehicles type III ambulance built on a Ford E-450 chassis from Speciality Vehicles. Inside, the compartments are stocked with BLS equipment for bleeding control, airway management, oxygen administration, and immobilization. In addition, our ambulance carries a full complement of basic medications including Epinepherine, Aspirin, Albuterol, Naloxone (Narcan®), oral glucose, and oxygen. The vehicle also is equipped with the Whelen Howler™, which provides deep, low frequency tones that are able to penetrate other vehicles, alerting inattentive drivers and pedestrians. Furthermore, the vehicle is equipped with a Stryker Power-PRO™ XT cot and the Stryker Power-LOAD™ system.
