Tampa Orders Six Medtec Ambulances

Issue 2 and Volume 14.

Medtec Ambulance Corporation said Tampa, Fla., Fire and Rescue ordered six ambulances with delivery expected in early spring 2009.

The contract is valued at $1.2 million, and the city opted to paint the ambulances in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ color scheme, matching some recent fire apparatus purchases.

Each Medtec ambulance features 72-inch-high walk-around space, an easy-access medical control center, customized interior cabinetry, including temperature controlled storage, and spacious exterior compartments.

A multiplexed electrical system and a maximum capacity dual voltage air conditioning system are also provided. Airborne contamination is minimized with a supplemental UV air purification system.

“We are pleased to support the Tampa Fire and Rescue department with our state-of-the-art AD-170 ambulances,” said Pete Evans, Medtec’s general manager. “This is truly a next generation ambulance vehicle… These Medtec ambulances are the largest and most adaptable medical rescue vehicles available.”

The units were sold through Ten-8 Fire Equipment, Inc., the Pierce and Medtec dealer for Florida and Georgia. Both Pierce and Medtec are subsidiaries of Oshkosh Corporation.
