In March of 2005, Rutgers University Emergency Medical Services (Rutgers EMS) took delivery of a 2005 Ford E350 PL Custom Type III ambulance. This new and quite welcome addition to the fleet is more spacious than the 2 type II ambulances currently in service. This increase in space will aid medical personnel so that they can do their jobs with even greater ease and will no doubt ensure improved comfort for the patient.
