03/24/09 59 W, 2 I - + 15 - 11 More New Ambulances (Updated)

Here's a low-resolution high resolution preview of the latest additions to the Wake County EMS fleet. Two of five commercial chassis ambulances have been delivered. The third is expected in two weeks, and will be equipped with a special bariatric lift device. The remaining two arrive this summer. Click once or twice to enlarge:

I take it that these units were ordered last year, in that the chevrons are blue and yellow. Wouldn’t it have been prudent to change to the new color scheme for chevrons now?

These new units were recently delivered in all white and decaled/stripped after delivery.I must say they are very sharp looking.

this is our color scheme, and it’s color-blind friendly!

They look good. Same box on a bigger chassis? Where are they going in service at?

Hehe, hard to believe that a few years ago we called something very similar to these our “rescue trucks” in the RFD. Thank goodness not anymore! We’ve come a long way!
