Last week Simon Corbell unveiled five new ambulances.
Considering they take the total up to 20 this is a major addition.
- “The three extra ambulance vehicles and two replacement vehicles have been provided by the ACT Government at a cost of $910,400. The five new vehicles – four Intensive Care Ambulances and one Patient Transport Unit – feature:
- improved high-visibility markings;
- LED warning lights that use new technology to draw greater attention to the vehicles under emergency conditions;
- orange “low-glow” exterior lighting to improve visibility at night;
- new module designs to facilitate the introduction of new and emerging pre-hospital technologies; and
- reversing cameras.”
And they’re Mercedes, noice.
