Interestingly (and sadly) the Merc Sprinters they're using have been "requisitioned" from the volunteer divisions. Not sure how they can really justify that when some of the vollie vehicles around here are falling apart.

It is sad about the Vollies sprinters BUT in Victoria you might'nt be surprised to find that all 19 Sprinters have been built and paid for by AV. The Biatric units fittings alone cost $38000.00 (that not counting the installation and special seats requiered).

It's not what you know BUT who you know.......Jobs for boy's again.
(until someone can factually prove me wrong).

It is good to see st johnnies being utilised for non emergency transport by AV freeing up the ICPS and Volunteer Crews to respond to Code 0,Code 1 and Code 2 cases

Could be wrong here, but I thought that the bariatric vehicles were existing ones that AV had already been contracting out to NPT?

Yes you are right in part Scrubbed.
The only difference is they are NEW ones fitted with Stryker units at $38,000 each unit (not counting installation). The old ones are up in the country still.
Just for a moment in time could be a problem for St Johns as all their ambulances have been fitted with Stryker stretchers, incompatible with Ferno 50 E stretchers and cannot be loaded into Helimed with the current Helimed configuration.
