Nashua in the running for free bus-to-ambulance conversion
“Using multiple ambulances is fine, but it is not always convenient,” said Justin Kates, emergency management director for the city of Nashua. “Using something like an AmbuBus can get numerous victims to a hospital in one trip.”
“There are a lot of different uses for this kit that would greatly benefit Nashua,” said Kates.
In addition to transporting large numbers of patients to area hospitals, an AmbuBus could also be used during evacuations of nursing homes or other long-term care facilities, with plenty of room for people in wheelchairs.
He believes that a former city-owned transit bus or even an old school bus could be converted into an AmbuBus if the city wins the contest.
According to information provided by Virginia-based First Line Technology, an AmbuBus can carry more than a dozen patients. Currently, there are more than 400 AmbuBuses deployed in about 20 states, according to a news release.
