    Congrats on your new piece. Looks like it is very well thought out, best of luck to you guys.

    Just one thing- Whoever designed the paint scheme/graphics....Needs to go into rehab immediately and detox.

    Looks like a very nicely planned-out rig. Congrats.

    The graphics are...unusual.

    I was having a similar thought.

    Nice. I can see a lot of thought has gone into it and I also see a lot of borrowed ideas, which is good too. Personally though, I wouldn't have put the chevrons on the upper sides of the body. White paint would have been sufficient and looked better IMO. Nice rig!

    You'd think. An EMS agency near me got a new ambulance a couple years ago. It was billed as one of the "super safe" designs inside and outside and had chevrons on the whole back, the Battenberg style striping down both sides - belt line and bottom plus reflective stripping on the hood and a lot of super LED lighting. Still got clipped by a passing tractor-trailer at an MVA on a 4-lane road on day.

    Looks like a very capable and well thought out rescue truck.

    HOWEVER, I think the side chevrons are WAY too much......I think at a certain point it becomes a distraction when it's that large.

    Nice looking rig, hope it does what you want and need it to do.

    (had to save it and convert it to a black and white pic to see it clearly.)
