Road Rescue Introduces Patient-Centric Concept Ambulance at FDIC
Date:4/10/2008

MARION, S.C., April 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Road Rescue will unveil its new patient-centric design concept at the Fire Department Instructors Conference, which opens today.

Road Rescue, a subsidiary of Spartan Motors, Inc. (Nasdaq: SPAR), will showcase a unique concept that starts with the patient as the central focus and designs outward from there. The new vehicle repositions key ambulance features so that emergency medical technicians will have better and more efficient access to patients during transport while at the same time improving safety for all involved.

It will also offer enhanced lighting, additional safety features and optional antimicrobial coatings. The new patient-centric ambulances will be on display at Booth 2432 during the industry's largest trade show, which runs through April 12 in Indianapolis, Ind.

"More than 99 percent of all ambulances that go out on a run have a cot in them," said Gary DeCosse, president of Road Rescue. "Yet when an ambulance is designed and sold, rarely is the patient the starting point. We revamped our design process and began with the cot - and its patient - as the central point.

"This allowed us to develop a central trough across the center of the ambulance where we could position all the key features needed by EMTs within easy reach. We also repositioned the lights, air vents and control panels for better access. The result is an exceptionally functional vehicle that positions the patient and the attendant EMT at the center of the action."

Road Rescue's new concept ambulance features an innovative design that delivers multiple benefits, including:
