The Fire Medical Vehicle (FMV) is a hybrid function emergency vehicle that has both the firefighting capabilities of a light weight fire engine and medical support functions of an ambulance. Firefighters who are cross-trained in emergency medical services can provide early care to victims as well as control the situation of the incident, improving first response efficiency.
The FMV is engineered with firefighting components on the frontal half while the rear carries the ambulance cabin. These include a fire pump with Compressed Air Foam System (CAFS) as well as multiple storage lockers for hoses and fire-fighting equipment. The ambulance cabin has all the essential medical equipment including a stretcher support system, an automatic dual oxygen bottle switch over system and a medication cooler.
