Jet-wise, LeerJets are the most popular among air ambulances. Although the LeerJet has long stopped production and was replaced by the BeechJet, Leer's have a larger passenger… door allowing enough room for the onboard gurneys to be removed without taking the patient off the cot. Beech and newer aircraft have all sacrificed that door opening to get enough room to allow more rooms for seating.. For propeller aircraft, the most popular for medevac crews and maintenance staff both are the KingAirs.. I don't know the specific model numbers off the top of my head - I work in the back of them, not the front.

Towns often have a budget set aside for Emergency Services, which include the local ambulance crew. However, this cost is often not paying for the town to use these service…s for free. Unlike the fire and police department, which are free services paid completely through your taxes, most town EMT services charge for their services, going through your health insurance if they can. If it is an auto accident, then the EMT services will go through your motor vehicle insurance first. Some towns have a membership or subscription, or even a town fund, whereby people who either subscribe or cannot pay, are not pursued by credit bureaus for the cost of their ambulance trip. Many towns often have a hardship request, whereby you apply to let the town know how poor you are, and they decide if you are able to pay the cost of your transport.

Ambulance services : are medical transportation services that are often called upon to move ailing individuals from one location to another. The most common relevance of t…his type of service is to respond to an emergency situation, such as an auto accident or the sudden collapse of an individual, quickly moving the ill or injured party to a care facility where he or she can receive treatment.

Rapid Transport Of Trained Medical Crew: There are a 2 types of ambulance crews; Emergency Medical Technician and Paramedic (both are also able to drive the ambulance as wel…l as work in the back). When someone has a heart attack, for example, he or she will need IMMEDIATE medical help, such as a paramedic/EMT and a doctor (the ambulance crew may be the first help to arrive). The ambulance must be able to get quickly to the scene, which is why an ambulance uses lights and sirens). It must get there quickly because a heart attack is a life threatning condition and it is important to act quicky to ensure the victim survives.. Essential Medical Supplies: In addition to the first (above) aim, an ambulance also carries essential life-saving equipment/supplies (eg. Oxygen cylinders, AED's, etc). In this sense ambulance crews only aim is to use this equipment when need to ensure that a person can survive before arriving at hospital, but it is not the only aim (other aims of ambulance crews include: transporting people to nearest hospital, reassurance of patient/s and stabilising the patient).. The above examples deal with one individual ambulance and crew rather than the whole ambulance service, but at the same time the above aims can relate to the whole ambulance service industry as a whole. I gave examples individually to make it easier to understand.. Hope this helped:)

There aren't any ambulances in the game.
The question is a little ambiguous. If the question relates to being taken unconscious to the hospital and then trying to protest an ambulance bill on the grounds that one di…d not give consent, good luck with that. The law pretty much everywhere presumes that an unconscious person would want medical treatment rather than to be left in a ditch or a flaming automobile.
