Ambulance service is just that; a service. Usually a privatecompany, providing a service (showing up and quickly getting you toa hospital when you call 911). They don't get paid by the hospitalor the "ambulance fairy", so generally when you are transported byambulance, you get a bill from them as yo…u would any otherbusiness. Many times insurance covers the cost, and if someone hasno insurance, you get a bill for the cost of the driver, themedical staff, insurance etc... the costs of emergencytransportation. Think of it as a "super-qualifed medical taxi". (MORE)
ANSWER: . Because when you see it in your rear-view mirror, It reads AMBULANCE, and you know to pull over to let it pass.
They have a siren so that they can alert motorists to the fact that they have to get past traffic to get to their destination as fast as possible. Motorists are suppose to pull to the side of the road to get out of the way for them.
Bellevue Hospital in New York City is credited with establishing the first hospital-based civilian ambulance service in the United States. Source: http://www.infoplease.com/askeds/first-ambulance-service.html
Ambulant vendors are walking vendors that sell items and goods on asmall scale, or sell food, usually in an outdoor environment.
im assuming that you mean the livery on vehicles. I cant find a specific date but i know that the livery was done this way because vehicle drivers may not be able to read the word when an ambulance is behind them. Because of this, they may worry that it might be a police vehicle.
synonym for ambulance hospital wagon, mobile hospital, Red Cross truck, rescue squad,field wagon, hospital plane, sick transport, medevac (short forMedical evacuation), life flight, mobile care vehicle, etc
In America, on a ground vehicle ambulance, nurses are not required and almost never attend. Pretty much the only time you'll see a nurse in a standard ambulance, is if one of the EMT's is training to become a nurse.. Medivac Flights (chopper or plane), however, almost always have at least one nurse… on crew.. Other countries use different protocols and may dispatch doctors and/or nurses with the unit. (MORE)
It's a caduceus, a staff with a snake around it ... the ancient sign of a medical person. Not to be confused with the staff of Mercury (messenger of the gods) who had a pair of snakes. Unfortunately the U S Army did mix them up, and confused almost everyone.
yes you do have to stop. you can get a ticket for not yeilding to an emergancy vehicle
The rule is different for all agencies, but where I work (in Pasco County Florida), we will allow 1 person to ride with the patient to the hospital (doesnt matter whether he/she is a relative or not) ALTHOUGH, we can refuse to allow ANYONE to ride if we feel that they may hinder patient care (e.g. b…eing too dramatic or upset over the situation) (MORE)
They have mirrors in order to be able to see around them. The ambulance is a large emergency vehicle. It is often necessary that the proceed to the emergency room of the nearest hospital as quickly as they can in a safe manner. The mirrors allow them to merge in traffic and navigate through tight ar…eas in order to get to a patient or to get the patient to the hospital. (MORE)
The aim of this is to allow people driving in front of the vehicle (ambulance) to see the word "AMBULANCE" when he/she looks in the rear view mirror. If the word was not reversed, the driver of the car ahead of the vehicle would see: "ECNALUBMA"
Jules Essex answer:. Seeing an ambulance is very unlucky unless you hold your breath or pinch your nose until you see a black or brown dog. Touch your toes Touch your nose Never go in one of those Until you see a dog. Agreed, it's unlucky. However, we used to touch our collars and say 'touc…h your collar never swallow (East end accent pronounced 'swaller'), never happen again' which kept us safe from whatever had happened to the person in the ambulance.

They Are Paramedics or Emergency Medical Technicians. They go To Emergency Calls or pick up some people from Convalescent homes and transport them to Hospitals and back home
A plane or helicopter that functions just as a ground ambulance, but they are faster and usually used in inter-facility transports. These air ambulances are oftened staffed with highly trained personnel.
Ambulant is the Latin word for 'walk' or any other variations of the word walk like 'walking' or 'walked'.
The term ambulance comes from the Latin word ambulare, meaning to walk or move about which is a reference to early medical care where patients were moved by lifting or wheeling.
A water ambulance is a boat equipped to provide medical services and transportation just like a land based ambulance
Bcoz the name written in opposite direction looks on the correct direction when viewed through the mirror so that is the reasonâ¦..if a vehicle going in front of the ambulance can read it correctly and give a way to go a head
All ambulance units in the Ambulance service I work for ( both Response Cars and Ambulances) Have Radio's and touchscreen computers mounted to the dashboard. We also have mobile phones which we use in emergencies should the radio or computer fail.
Quote Wikipedia: " The term ambulance comes from the Latin word ambulare, meaning to walk or move about which is a reference to early medical care where patients were moved by lifting or wheeling." Well, there you have it. . -Alyssa
it is a hardcore match where you try to put your enemy in a ambulance and close the door
An ambulance driver does exactly what it sounds like, drives the ambulance. But also, the driver is most likely medicaly trained as well so they can assist in emergencys.
It's related to the word ambulatory. Capable of walking, mobile. In the word noctambulous, which pertains to a person who sleep walks or walks at night. Noct meaning night and ambulous walk or move around.
So that drivers ahead of it on the road can read it (correctly) as AMBULANCE in their rear-view mirrors, and yield the right of way. If the word was not reversed, the drivers of the cars ahead of the vehicle would see: "ECNALUBMA." Of course, if it has flashing lights and sirens going, they wo…uld yield to it anyway. Perhaps this was done so that drivers would not mistake an ambulance for a police vehicle with similar lights. (MORE)
It means that the person in the ambulance is not critical, but they still need to hurry and get to a hospital..so it's just a "let us through" kind of thing.
The printing is reversed when viewed in a rear- view automobile mirror and it will look correct.
Fire trucks always come with ambulances because skills a fireman have might be needed that a paramedic does not. They go hand and hand because you never know when the situation might call for it. The ambulance and driver is for transport and treatment to the hospital, the fireman is for rescue or …getting the person to the EMT for treatment. An ambulance EMT can't get someone out of a burning house or wrecked car. They probably could, but it is not their job and wouldn't have the equipment to do it. (MORE)
An ALS ambulance is an Advanced Life Support ambulance. It carries things like medications given intravenously and allows for some more invasive treatment in the case of emergencies, such as tracheotomies (running a tube down your trachea).
Pretty sure they ride in an ambulance because they are needed.Doctors can't just ride in an ambulance when their patients arepossibly dying, or in a coma.
So that it can be seen by drivers looking in their side or rear view mirrors.
The word ambulance on an ambulance is backwards because when you're in front of an ambulance and there's an emergency you would usually see from your rear view mirror. When you see something in a mirror it is always backwards. so when you see the word ambulance on an ambulance, you would see it norm…ally. (MORE)
why a ambulance has a siren a ambulance has a siren because if someones about to die from being stabed and the ambulance is caught in traffic the person will die so a siren will create a sound that the cars in front can hear they'll move out the way so the ambulance can get to the person fast
We need ambulances so they can take sick people or hurt people to the hospital quicker. They have a loud siren that warns everyone that someone is hurt or sick. When you see them passing by or blowing the horn """STOP""" and let them get the sick or hurt people to the hospital.
It is spelled backwards on the front so that cars in front of it can read the word the right way around using their rear view mirrors :)
That depends on what type of ambulance you are talking about. Emergency Ambulance: most common type which provide care to people with an illness or injury. It can be road-going van, boat, helicopter, or fixed-wing aircraft also known as air ambulance. Patient transport ambulance: a vehicle in which …is used for transporting patients to, from or between different places for medical treatment such as hospital or dialysis for any non-urgent care. Response unit: this is also known as a fly-car and is used to reach an acutely ill or injured patient quickly so that they may give on site medical care. This type of ambulance however does not have the ability to transport patients. Response units must be backed up by an emergency ambulance. Response units can be anything from a standard car, modified van, motorcycle, bicycle, quads or horses. Charity ambulance: special type of transport ambulance for the purpose of taking sick children or adults on trips/vacations away from hospitals, hospices or care homes where they are for long term care.

It's usually only reversed on the front... so that people who see it behind them in their rear view mirrors can read it. However, if someone is too stupid to recognize that that big van with flashing lights and a siren is an emergency vehicle, I'm not sure that having "Ambulance' written on it is li…kely to help, since they're probably also illiterate.

The 'AMBULANCE' banner is a mirror image so that when I come up behind you and you look in your rearview mirror and read 'AMBULANCE' you will get the hell out of my way!
Ambulance attendant is an old name for what is now known as an EMT or paramedic. In today's ambulances there are two people in each vehicle, supplemented by additional persons from the fire department in the case of a critical transport. In the case where two people involved, there is a driver and a…n attendant. The attendant, who is either an EMT or paramedic, is the one who sits in the ambulance with the patient until they arrived at a hospital. Ambulance drivers, who are often also EMT or paramedics, are going to be charged with driving the ambulance. If the driver is an EMT or paramedic he will take that role once he arrives at the pickup site or the hospital. (MORE)
So a driver in front of the ambulance can read the word in his/her rear view mirror. Write the word ambulance on a piece of paper and write the word ambulance backwards on the same piece of paper. Hold the paper up to a mirror and you will see that the backwards word is now the right way and the r…ight way word is now backwards (MORE)
It depends on where you are in the world. In the US, most ambulances sirens have 2 or 3 settings....a long, slowly ascending and descending Whooo sound, a short rapidly ascending and descending warble tone, and sometimes a 3rd, higher, louder, phazer sound (my favorite to get attention of complace…nt drivers). Rarely , US rigs will have a European, up/down, British, DA/da/DA/da/DA tone. We have 1 rig at our department with the rare European setting. I love to use that setting through intersections here in the US just to mess with people, because most Americans have never heard that tone, except in movies. Ambulances in the US also have either a genuine air powered horn (awesome), and/or an electronic simulated air horn sound (lame). If you pay attention, before long you will able to tell the difference between police, ambulance, fire engines, and personally owned emergency response sirens just by the subtle sounds of each siren. The loudest, best siren is the air powered siren on the Fire Engines. They are controlled by a foot button located on the floor of both the driver and passenger/officer seat of the engine, an air pump, and a big, loud, steel speaker horn. They are easily the loudest siren available. Some police cars in the US have a "Rumbler Siren" that bottoms out at a subsonic level to send shock waves into the ground and surrounding areas, so that even if you have a crazy loud stereo cranked up in your car, you will feel the police siren in your bones....pretty cool. Ambulance sirens are usually between 100 and 200 watts of powered sound, and about half of the drivers on the road are completely oblivious to both lights and sirens until you are really close. When you see emergency lights behind you with a siren in America, pull to the RIGHT and stop. They will always pass you on the left in the US. If it a cop, you will notice blue lights. It is very rare for any other emergency vehicles to employ blue lights in their ensemble...and usually illegal. If an unmarked police car attempts to pull you over, call 911 and verify the identity of the unmarked car before pulling over, or drive to the local PD if it is close. Although illegal, it is not hard hard to obtain emergency lights in the US, and is a tool used by criminals to pull over victims. Rare, but it happens. (MORE)
Because the name written in opposite direction looks on the correct direction when viewed through the mirror so that is the reasonâ¦..if a vehicle going in front of the ambulance can read it correctly and give a way to go a head. Research by ARSALAN (AZEE)
Ambulances are commonly staffed in two person crews. The type of licensure these people have depend on the type of ambulance they are operating in. There are two different types of ambulances: Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS). A BLS truck is staffed with at least one EMT-Bas…ic or sometimes, an EMT-Advanced. The other crew member is either another EMT-B, EMT-A, or an Medical First Responder (MFR). A BLS truck is equipped to deal with most emergencies but will not have all the capabilities of an ALS truck. ALS trucks are staffed with at least one EMT-Paramedic, and either an EMT-B, EMT-A, or another EMT-P. These trucks and crew are trained in advanced methods such as cardiology and pharmacology and are able to do things like EKGs, start IVs and administer drugs, and intubate. An ambulance will always have at least an EMT-Basic, and most ambulances are ALS, meaning they have at least one Paramedic at all times. (MORE)
A ambulant toilet is a toilet that is accessible to those that are disabled. These toilets are mandatory in many stores and businesses. They include support rails and are inside of larger stalls then regular toilets are.
You notice they only do this on the front of the vehicle. Whenlooked at through a rearview mirror, the word "ambulance" appearsnormal this way. This allows persons in vehicles in front of theambulance to immediately recognize what's behind them, and get outof the way.
Ambulant in Latin, the stem is Ambulans being the present participle of Ambulare meaning 'to walk'
So that - if you view the word in a car's rear-view mirror - it'swritten the right way round. It's the same on other emergecyvehicles too.
Modern electronic sirens change amplitude and pitch. Older sirens produced tones that changed in amplitude (volume) but were changed in pitch by their motion relative to the listener: increasing in frequency as they approached and decreasing in frequency when they moved away. This is called the Dopp…ler Effect. (MORE)
you put your foot on the gas petal slightly more than you would when your driving a car or truck then you put your lights on and go to the area you need.
