Japanese fire truck maker Morita has announced that it has developed the world's first fire truck capable of transporting wounded people and functions like an ambulance. This model will be put on the market in April next year.
Morita's newly developed fire truck ambulance is called Shokyusha or FFA--001 (FFA stands for fire ambulance) and is usually used as a fire truck. When there are not enough ambulances at the fire scene to take the wounded to the hospital, The model will also function as an ambulance.
FFA-001 is 5.65 meters long, 1.9 meters wide, and 2.5 meters high. It can carry up to 6 people, including an injured person lying on a stretcher. The door is an electric closing door. Fire extinguishing equipment such as hoses are stored behind the car, and a ladder that can stretch to 4.2 meters is placed on the roof of the car.
Morita pointed out that the company developed this new model at the request of firefighters, but this model cannot be used as a fire engine and ambulance at the same time.
FEA-001 is available in red and white colors and is priced at 20 million yen. An ordinary fire truck sells for 15 million yen. Morita hopes to sell 200 FFA-001s by 2007 with sales of 4 billion yen.
