Fire, rescue and transport all in one vehicle

The new Patriot fire/ rescue/ transport unit features an ambulance body that is fully transport capable, has rescue compartments for equipment and can carry up to 200 gallons of water. The unit is also designed to have a Compressed Air Foam System (CAFS) to hold and dispense up to 15 gallons of foam as well as two 1-inch booster reels on each side of the module.

Braun has mounted a customized Super Chief module – a Type 1 medium-duty ambulance – on a Spartan Fu-rion chassis to deliver maximum interior space and available payload with the Patriot. The Super Chief has 73 inches of interior headroom and enough space for up to six crew members plus equipment, while the chassis boasts 21,000 to 31,000 pounds rear Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR). Additional options to ease in patient care include angled fluorescent lighting, Braun's EZ Glide Door (that allows rescue personnel to safely slide the ambulance door against the module rather than out into traffic) and the MasterTech III touch button system that controls the module's electronic functions and provides real-time on-board diagnostics.
