My business QRV.
Yes indeed. Talk about a fun endeavor. But I actually just sold the whole business because of the move.
The ambulance, not the tow truck. Although it's nearly the same shade of green...
I was going to ask if your trucks broke down so frequently that you had your own tow truck.......
Our fleet is standardized. Our supervisors all drive new model Ford explorers with the police package and the 3.5 NA engine (pretty peppy!) Our ambulances are all Dodge 4500 4x4 chassis, although our newest one and all future ones are going to be on 5500 chassis.
Also, tomorrow is our agencies open house where we will have our portable hospital set up and all vehicles on display. My agency has asked my to go as the photographer. I'll post of more photos of the MMU (mobile medical unit) and ambulance tomorrow.
Idk if they will have the whole thing set up, but when fully deployed the MMU is capable of keeping over 50 patients longish term, and has surgery, pharmacy, lab, x-ray, etc.
Not to Bragg but.....
I see what you did there....
Anyways, this what our City & County EMS Dept rides in:

Hehe, got 'em coach.
Here are our newest rides
These absolute snack of a unit
I was on a fly-car the other night and snapped this with my phone.
no more SUVs? I know they were going away from ambulances, but I'm surprised to see them in pick up trucks (although they are likely cheaper). didn't they ask RBMC what they though of being in the dog catcher trucks?
I’m a big fan of the slide in ALS units.
yeah were moving away from the suburbans, they are more expensive to upfit than the F350s. There has been talk of a dog catcher like Austin Travis use
Good for resale value, I'd imagine.
This thread is making me jealous. Especially when I'm in the GMC van-based rigs.
