Med Center Health gets new ambulance
Med Center Health EMS has a new ambulance in its fleet, and the new addition will make the paramedics’ job a lot easier with the single press of a button.
The new transport vehicle comes with an automated stretcher power load system.
Paramedics now have the ability to load patients with the push of a button, instead of the need for multiple people to lift and load the patient into the vehicle.
This specific vehicle will only be used for transport and not emergency situations, which will free up the rest of the fleet for 9-1-1 calls.
The system is able to hold up to 700 pounds meaning it’s equipped to handle bariatric patients as well.
While the power load system will make life easier for paramedics, it will also be more beneficial for patients.
