Anybody know anything about these? Looked like Ford E-series Type 3s all white with FDNY Ambulance written on them. Numbers on the boxes were 2020 and 2046. There was a total of four of them (being transported on semi's) parked on the West Shore this morning just off of Exit 4.

Saw a post on Facebook about them and a comment that said they were being leased to increase capability during the virus crisis. Nothing about who might man them. Don't know if there was any truth to that.

Sorry they are gone from that location.

Solid white with the orange and red stripes. FDNY Ambulance logo in red. Ford E series type 3. There were a total of four on two trucks. Design and graphic is similar to the appearance of the ambulances that were leased after Transcare ceased ops a few years ago.

Probably got a good deal on them. Factory white paint job, slap some decals on and away we go. There's probably going to be current on line busses going off service for deep decon just as was done post 9/11.

REV Group Facebook page has a picture of ambulances leaving their facility headed to NYC.  Says part of an emergency order of 81 Ambulances.  Look like E-series based and says the rigs are from their brands.  Just don?t know how to post link to Facebook.

Yeah, who was thinking what when they made a black ambulance.
