Ambulances, Stations & Special Operations
Miami County EMS operates six ambulances that are a combination of LifeLine or Braun conversions on a Ford E-450 chassis.
Here is the patient compartment of Medic 6. We carry a full compliment of basic and advanced life support equipment. We use PhysioControl LP-15 cardiac monitors equipped with 12-lead ECG capability, end-tidal CO2, SpO2, and temperature. Our ambulances are equipped with refrigerators for keeping some medications and IV fluids cold. We also have IV warmers when warmed fluids are indicated such as for trauma and burns. All of our ambulances are equipped with advanced life support medications, Baxter Spectrum IV pumps, a ReVel CareFusion transport ventilator, and a Stryker Power Pro Cot and stair chair.

Mass Casualty Incident Trailer
Our Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) trailer is 25' and used for disaster response. This trailer carries extra spine boards, cervical collars, splints, bandaging materials, IV supplies, radios and chargers, a computer and printer, crew supplies, and various other resources. The trailer is air conditioned and serves as a command post or an aid station at a scene. The shelving can be converted into bunk beds for the crews if deployed on lengthy assignments. This trailer has been field-tested at several large disasters including the Osawatomie flood and both the Greensburg and Joplin tornadoes.
