11/02/11 132 W, 1 I - + 13 - 4 Morehead City Ambulance Bus

FireNews.net has the skinny on Morehead City's new medical ambulance bus. The town received the thing in October, funded entirely by a $357,000 homeland security grant. The 42-foot vehicle can carry a combination of 12 patients on stretchers and 10 patients on wheelchairs, or 23 ambulatory patients in seats. Though operated by Morehead City Fire & EMS, the unit will respond outside the town as requested. It's one of five in the state. (Where are the others? Wake County EMS. New Hanover Regional EMS. Mecklenburg EMS. Who else?) Read the FireNews.net story for more. See also other articles (and reader comments) from the News-Times and WITN. (There's nothing quite as interesting as responses and reactions from Joe Q. Public to the machinery of emergency services...)

I believe Asheville Fire Department operates a bus similar to this one.
