My New Office

Previously I mentioned that we were expecting delivery of a new ambulance at work. I’ve never had a new rig in over 10 years in EMS, so this was a bit exciting.

We received it last week, with only 1600 miles on the odometer. (Most of that is the trip from the factory.) Alas, it rained for all of my shift, so I didn’t get a chance for any photos. This week the weather was better, but I left my camera home.
Here are a couple of cell phone shots from yesterday’s shift. As my blog is unofficial, I’ve removed the company markings with a photo editor. If you know, you know.

I kinda like the scare stripes, and the white LEDs look cool.

It has a few features I like, and one or two I’m not so crazy about. I’m sure I’ll blog more about it later, but right now I’m just enjoying the new ambulance smell.

  1. Ahh, the new ambulance smell. I miss that. I'm more use to the "ten year old hand-me-down" smell. Oh, and cow manure… this *is* Wisconsin

  3. Wow, that's fairly nifty that your ambulance is yellow 🙂 I'm assuming in the Emergency sector?

  4. Well, it's the American model so we do everything. Emergency, transfer, ALS, BLS, you name it. We are primarily assigned as a 911 unit, though.
