Type I ambulances are some of the largest ambulance options available. These vehicles have a square patient compartment and are mounted on a large, truck-like chassis. Most heavy-duty ambulances are of this type. Type I ambulances are often found at airports, chemical plants, oil refineries, and other locations that require ambulances to be equipped with medical equipment for Advanced Life Support.

With your choice of a Ford, Dodge, or Chevy chassis, ARV can provide you with the power and dependability that you need in a custom built modular ambulance. With the safest modular body in the industry and countless options available, we can ensure our ambulances will provide you with assurance and comfort while catering to your department’s needs.

Type I ambulances are available in different types of powertrains (such as 2- or 4-wheel drive) and come with a variety of feature options, regardless of the chassis you choose. Many ambulance features are added on after the chassis is built, and we will work with you to customize your vehicle to have all thefeatures you’re looking for.
