Publication Date: 1 August 2007
Status: active
Page Count: 69
scope:

This specification identifies the minimum requirements for new automotive Emergency Medical Services (EMS) ambulances (except military field ambulances) built on Original Equipment Manufacturer's Chassis (OEM) that are prepared by the OEM for use as an ambulance.

The ambulances are front or rear wheel driven (4x2) and minimally warranted as specified in Section 6.

Refurbishing and remounted vehicles are not covered by this standard. This standard applies to new vehicles only.

By definition an ambulance is a vehicle used for emergency medical care and patient transport. This specification is for the construction of ambulances, not for vehicles intended for use as fire apparatus. National and international standards exist for automotive fire apparatus. These standards can be obtained from organizations such as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

Section 3 of this specification contains:

• Optional configurations.

• A worksheet to assist the purchaser in developing their procurement requirements.

PURPOSE.

The purpose of this document is to describe ambulances that are authorized to display the "Star of Life" symbol. It establishes minimum specifications, performance parameters and essential criteria for the design of ambulances and to provide a practical degree of standardization. The object is to provide ambulances that are nationally recognized, properly constructed, easily maintained, and, when professionally staffed and provisioned, will function reliably in pre-hospital or other mobile emergency medical service.
