Road Rescue’s Type I ambulances are mission-ready road rebels, with top-of-the-line features and rock-solid engineering that defies industry standards. Built on experienced chassis brands, these ambulances are revolutionary units with plenty of muscle for a lifetime of service.

A CUT ABOVE THE REST

Unique to the industry, each Road Rescue ambulance is laser cut with numerically computerized precision for more efficiency, faster lead times and high repeatability, unlike the competition that relies on hand-cutting and old-fashioned measuring that leads to inaccuracy.

A ladder frame subfloor design delivers a support feature only found on Road Rescue ambulances. Comprised of a full-length, non-seamed tube that runs from the front to the rear of the structure, this 3” super structure adds more strength and protection latitude wise.
