Medtec Ambulance Corporation
, an Oshkosh Corporation [NYSE: OSK] company, has placed two RediMedic™ by Medtec™ ambulances into service at Community Life Support Systems, Inc., an emergency medical services

“We’re very excited that the RediMedic by Medtec brand has been selected as the newest member of its ambulance fleet by Community Life Support in Lackawanna County,” said Dan Peters, Medtec Ambulance senior vice president of sales. “Community Life Support offers a wide range of ambulance services, and it is the type of organization that is ideally positioned to take advantage of the quality and value that we’ve engineered into this line.”
The RediMedic by Medtec R146 includes features such as a recessed overhead grab-rail, angled and protected roll-up flooring, and ducted air conditioning to help make EMTs safer and more comfortable. The line also boasts sweep-out and drop-down compartments, set-back upper interior cabinets, a 10-switch front electrical panel, fire-grade ADP step-well, a sharps and waste compartment within the squad bench, and a host of other options.
