About this creation


















The Suicide Prevention and Intervaention Unit is a 2011 Ford F350 with a WBA light rescue body. It is equipped as a non-transport, first-response ALS unit. It is equipped with every EMS tool possible, because in these situations fractions of seconds count. It is also equipped with Holmatro extrication tools, as well as forcible entry tools. It responds with a MedLink ambulance and an engine company en route at all times. It is the only known unit of its kind in the fire community.

Full credit goes to Richard Yang of West Bottombrick Apparatus for this amazing truck. I cannot possibly express through words how much this truck means to me. For you it was a simple build, but to me, it means so much more.

The gold lettering on the rear of the truck reads "Lois Ann Fleemer", the girl behind the truck. For the full story, please follow this link. It's worth your time.

I like this truck, and the stripe design. Have you thought of adding a truck with a body like this one (not suicide prevention) but a rescue body like this to Medlink?

I have to say James, I really like this unit. I think it belongs to the Pd side of things but it's nice. And to CyberFrank, all departments have their own color scheme, like mine is white over red with a white stripe. He has the triple stripe which is very uncommon.

I could see this going to schools and work places with high stress to provide counciling that there is help available.

it s a great concept, but, a little confusing! are the colors connected to a specificity in a dept? ex orange recycle, could you specify? i really like it! [the concept of color band]

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 one of your best! but, what are the multi colored bands? gay flags? can you clear this? i don t figure you like that! lol!
The multi-color bands is my signature striping design. I was fooling around with some loose parts and i really liked the colors, so now I put the striping on whatever department trucks I can.

I just found out about five minutes ago that someone One of my friends knew committed suicide today. I didn't think I would have to dispatch the unit this fast. I suppose it's time for a remembrance incident...

Quoting Zak Overmyer James, this is a wonderful truck. A great addition to your department, and the LFD community. I hope this truck will save many lives. Was there a real truck that you modeled this after?
Not really. The original plan was to have a walk-in body, but when I saw the WBA catalog, I knew that this would be great, and since it's a modular body, I could swap it out and try new configurations. To be honest, I hope that I will never have to dispatch this unit, except to a mass-casualty incident or as a backup unit. It was more of a "buy now, think later" kinda thing. But in the end it's worth it. I don't really need a huge rescue right now anyway, lol.
