At A Glance

Modern Ambulances

• Many ambulances are custom-built.

• The interiors of ambulances are often small.

• Many ambulances are equipped with two-way radios or cellphones.

• Most ambulances have internal combustion engines.

• Ambulances in colder areas generally use gasoline, because diesel vehicles are difficult to start in cold temperatures.
