First Responder

The perfect complement to an emergency response fleet, the First Responder steps in to handle public gatherings, sporting events, and otherwise hard to access areas.

Available in gas or electric power and built atop the feature rich Yamaha Drive2 platform.


patient accommodation

The First Responder can accommodate a full-size ambulance cot acting as a go-between in areas where traditional ambulances and EMTs might not be able to reach.

The cot deck can also be outfitted with a spine board and D-rings; commonly used by athletic trainers and in recreational areas or parks.


Lockable Supply Storage

Three separate lockable storage areas come standard to keep your equipment and supplies secure and protected from the elements.

The under seat compartment measures 16×16 x 12; the compartment under the cot deck measures 42x20x15.5; and lastly the rear top storage box measures 21x20x20.

We can work with you directly to build a custom ambulance that meets the needs of your medical team exactly.
