Sweet set!! It's always sad to visit a FD bone yard. That ambulance was manufactured by Wheeled Coach Industries in Orlando, FL. It's a class I rig on a Ford F350 chassis sporting a Whelen strobe light bar on the front. Strobes lights have been phased out in favor for new LED lights on emergency vehicles. This ambulance has a "walk-through" feature that enables access from the cab to the patient compartment. You can tell this is an outdated rig by looking at the floor in the patient compartment. Where the floor meets the squad bench and opposite floor is a seam. Now the floors curve up to make a giant "catch basin" so the body fluids won't seep in and grow funky. Sad to see it being picked clean. The fire engine on the left is a Pierce Pumper with a 1250 GPM pump and Federal Q sirens on the front. The one on the right looks like a Seagrave with a Mars 888 light and a Federal Q siren on the front. The fire station sure has deteriorated in just three short years. The echos of the past can be heard if you listen. Great set.
Thanks a bunch for the comments and the words of encouragement for Paramedic school, we just started getting into the meat and potatoes of ALS (Pharmacology, Pathophys, starting IV's, and all the fun stuff like that).
I looked at the Federal KKK-A-1822E Ambulance Specifications and I believe this Ambo would be classified as a Class III, it is a Cutaway Van/Truck with a walkthrough from the px compartment to the cab, and an integrated modular Ambulance body.
Also, this rig did have LED lights on the back and sides, it was just the lightbar in the front that was strobes...I know because one of the LED lights was popped out from the outside and was stored in one of the cabinets
It's not THAT old, the rig I have been riding in is an older, and a LOT more uncomfortable. This one made me kind of jealous
I agree, seeing a rig like this picked clean and then abandoned was pretty disappointing, it was very weird sitting in the EMSP's chair and not having a cot knocking you in the shin every time you moved
Thank you all for the great comments guys!
