Photo of the Week: 'Emergency!' ambulance prepped for restoration

Mechanics at the Los Angeles County Fire Museum shop are working to give new life to the 1969 Chevy Ambulance


Calling all EMS photographers! EMS1 wants to see pictures of you in action or training. Submit a photo — it could be selected as our Photo of the Week! Be sure to include your name, department information and some background on the photo.

This week's Photo of the Week comes from the Los Angeles County Fire Museum. Last month, the museum showcased the restoration of Engine 51 from the classic 70s TV show "Emergency!"; now, one of the show's ambulances is getting its time to shine with help from mechanics at the museum's shop. 

The museum wrote on Instagram that the 1969 Chevy rig was separated from its frame "for the first time since she was new" in preparation for the restoration work, which began last month. According to the museum's website, a "very extensive restoration" is planned, which will include rebuilding of the original engine and a new paint job. 

We're excited for the "after" pictures!
