AL 171

Type I Ambulance

Ford F-550 / Dodge RAM 5500

171" X 96" X 74"

The largest Type I in the Medix family, this rugged design offers ample room and storage space for your growing needs. Agile enough to navigate urban or rural communities, yet spacious with 171" long x 96" wide module with 74" headroom.


Its generous payload leads with capacity to support any crew when they need it most from BLS to ALS and heavy rescue operations.


Featuring all-aluminum cabinetry (and wood-free interior), the aluminum is powder-coated before installation ensuring it lasts, reducing possibility of damage from fluids or chemicals.
