Trending: Creative ambulance uses

From a controversial prom entrance to fulfilling the wishes of terminally ill patients, here are some unusual ways rigs are being used

An employee of the Public Hospitals Authority of the Bahamas was suspended for allowing an ambulance to be used for a teen’s dramatic prom entrance. AMR won a national award for its Sentimental Journey program, an Iowa EMS agency received praise for using its ambulance to fulfill end-of-life wishes of terminally-ill patients and another Iowa agency dispatched a crew to an incident that turned out to be a marriage proposal for the responding paramedic.
