12/01/11 116 W, 3 I - + 3 - 2 Clayton EMS 44 - Then & Now

Reader Jason Thompson has found Clayton's second EMS 44, a 1977 Chevrolet ambulance that was the first Type III in our region. The original was a 1965 Ford SD-Type. Scooby-Doo Type. And that's when they were called Clayton Rescue. Until that time, he recounts, Type I Swabs (original Wake County EMS units and many other local squads), Type II (one-piece vans), and high-top suburbans dominated EMS agencies around here. Plus, of course, all those Cadillacs and old Oldsmobiles and Pontiacs that were still around. This one's serving as a plumber's vehicle. Pretty cool. Thanks Jason!
