Off Road Mini Ambulance
Our custom built Off-Road Rescue Mini Ambulance is staffed just like it’s full-size counterpart with 2 EMT’s or Paramedics. Built on a sub-mini truck open chassis, it operates just like a street-legal vehicle with standard features such as; seat belts, blinkers, stereo, etc. The vehicle is gas powered and very quiet, it runs with a 3 cylinder 44 horsepower engine with a custom muffler to reduce exhaust noise. Although most of the time our medics never drive faster than 10 mph or so, it can reach speeds of up to 55 mph if necessary if responding over a long distance.
It’s off-road capabilities are impressive, it’s 4-wheel drive with custom lifted suspension and aggressive all-terrain tires paired with it’s naturally short wheel-base make climbing steep hills, overcoming large obstacles and tackling mud or sandy terrain a breeze.
The unit carries a full complement of medical and trauma equipment including on-board oxygen, cardiac monitor, extrication and basic first aid gear. Because we also operate in crowds, our mini ambulances are equipped with a standard ambulance siren that is customized with a volume control and for operation in highly populated areas as well as full emergency lighting (including scene lighting for added safety).
Operation of our mini ambulance units are very similar to full-sized ambulances. While transporting a patient, one of our medics drives while the other attends to the patient’s medical needs. Our mini ambulances also use a standard ambulance gurney, which makes transferring a patient to a full-size ambulance for transport to the hospital fast and efficient.
Due to it’ small size and all-terrain abilities, our mini ambulances makes an incredible impact on the response, treatment and evacuation of the sick and injured at outdoor special events. The ease with which it’s able to respond swiftly with full medical gear and manage an emergency scene without compromising patient care in rural situations is far superior to that of a standard ambulance or other types of response vehicles which are off-road capable.
