Excellance Type I Freightliner M2
Ellicott City Volunteer Fire Department, Howard Co., MD
Ellicott City recently took delivery of a 2020 Excellance Type 1 Ambulance on a Freightliner M2 Chassis. It is powered by a Cummins 240 HP motor with an Allison 2500 EVS transmission. Features include Alcoa aluminum wheels, air brakes, rear liquid suspension and RUDD chains. The aluminum patient compartment is 166 inches in lenght with an interior headroom of 74 inches. The roof is a "new" tropical roof which assists with reduction of heat which in turns reduces stress on the air conditioning unit. This unit will be equipped as an Advanced Life Support unit and has a Stryker Power Pro XT cot with Power-LOAD Fastener System. Other features include Whelen emergency lights and Fire Tech HiViz scene lighting.
