Wildland 1, "Alpine Assault"
About this creation




























Wildland 1 is a 2010 Ford F-550 with a body custom-built by the department shops. Wildland 1 runs not on tires, but instead on MatTracks. The main purpose of WL-1 is to run as a wildland Medic unit and firefighting unit during the winter months and mud season. WL-1 runs calls mainly to the Pine Knoll Ski Area in the winter to rescue injured skiers and snowboarders. It features a 500 Gallon poly tank, 150 GPM Waterous pump, and a 1" hosereel. Mounted on the rear is an insulated patient transport compartment with a heater. It holds one patient on a backboard and one Medic. The compartment on the side holds EMS equipment.

**NOTES**
My idea for this truck began about six months ago, when I came across the trucks of McMurdo Station Crash Fire-Rescue on the blog Scott Afar. I was inspired by Red 5 (towards bottom), a Ford light ARFF unit. I designed my MatTracks, and they sat in a PAB container for a while. Then, a friend of mine showed me his MatTracks design, which reminded me of my own. I'm not sure about his, but these are fully functional, they pivot, and each has its own independent suspension system. I had a lot of fun building this truck, and I certainly look forward to seeing my friend's design. I guess you could say this was a collaboration project between the two of us ;)

Quoting Christian Collins I love the whole idea, and it looks great. Does the compartment actually hold a medic and backboard?
With the right parts, maybe a backboard. But as of right now, it doesn't.
