Available Ambulance Types
The Type I
The Type I ambulance is one of the most recognizable vehicles in the business. This Type I ambulance design is based on the chassis of a heavy truck. What sets it apart from others is that has a square patient compartment and is mounted on a truck-like chassis. A Type I is often heavy duty and has extra cargo capacity.
These ambulance type vehicles are typically used for Advanced Life Support (sometimes referred to as Mobile Intensive Care Units). Along with that they are also used for rescue work.
The Type II
The Type II ambulance vehicles are built onto a commercial van chassis. The roof is often raised to give personnel room to work. They also have a secondary air conditioning unit for the rear.
These ambulances are focused on safety and are often used to navigate cramped city streets where larger ambulances would not be able to easily fit. The patient compartment is not separate from the driving compartment which can make the operating space more cramped. However, the superb fuel efficiency makes them a good choice for longer transports.
For those needing a transport vehicle for Basic Life Support, the Type II ambulance is the ideal mode of carrying. The Type II ambulance can also be used for fewer routine scenarios like rescue work.
The Type III
The Type III ambulance class has a square patient compartment much like the Type I ambulance, but it is mounted on a cutaway van chassis. This gives it a more integrated area between the patient compartment and cab.
These ambulance types have more room for equipment and are commonly used in Advanced Life Support (ALS) situations just like the Type I ambulances. They can be used for specific assignments in chemical plants, airports, oil refineries, or other places where extra storage for equipment is necessary.
