Nice demos, and European examples.

Has anyone else on this side of the pond actually bought them besides BC?

So far Niagara EMS, Waterloo Region EMS and Essex-Windsor EMS here in Ontario have added Sprinters. At least those are the ones that I know of. I seem to like the look of the Demers better than Crestline especially the modular style.

Looks like BCAS is requesting expressions of interest from qualified parties to remount Crestline ambulance bodies. Sounds like they'll take the Crestline bodies off the old E350 chassis and remount them onto new E350 chassis.

Seems like a smart plan that could save some money. If it's the chassis that's starting to fall apart but the body is fine, why not reuse it?

A lot of US EMS/Fire Departments do that with module body units. Philadelphia Fire Department is a big department that comes to mind that does this. I have not seen this happen too often in Canada. BCAS seems to be the largest department that I know of to do this.

RCMP? Seriously? Its vancouver Police not the RCMP...Does not say once in that whole article(or even the car in the picture) that it is RCMP.

Ok ok... People make mistakes. There are better ways of correcting people please... And yes I am aware that I am not always perfect about that either.

If your ever out in Revelstoke check out their 1978 Scot chassis with a 55-foot Snorkel run as snorkel 6. The town of Jaffray bought a used rescue from West Homestead Pennsylvania, it's a 1992 Ford F-8000 Aero Max with a Marion walk-in body

Spotted this fire truck on 49th and Victoria with not markings other than the Vancouver fire emblem on the doors

Anyone know the story behind it.

I also saw Medic 12 which now seems to be the Marine support unit
