03/21/14 161 W, 1 I - + 5 - 3 New Ambulances For Wake County EMS


Lee Wilson last week photographed six ambulances delivered to Wake County EMS. They are 2014 Chevrolet/American Emergency Vehicles Type III units, and built right here in North Carolina. (The company is located in Jefferson, NC.) See more photos from Lee. We'll look to readers to advise any particulars about the trucks, and their specs.
