Part 4: The trucks are put to the test. The delivery.
In November, 2015, three new custom Demers ambulances were delivered to the Missouri firehouses they would call home. Ten days later, we had a chance to catch up with the Florissant Valley FPD ambulance committee to get their feedback from the crew on key features like the user-friendly set up, the safe and ergonomic mobility seat, and the comfortable ride.
Watch as the Road to Demers arrives at its conclusion.
“It’s a huge difference from what we’re used to, the overall set up, it’s very convenient…Everything we need is right next to the mobility seat…we have no reason to get up and are belted in all the way to the hospital.”
“I’m sure your goal is for us to not look off the road when we’re driving…I’m looking straight ahead and the siren is right next to the steering wheel, the lights are straight ahead, everything that we need is right there. We don’t have to look down like we used to.”
