Type I / Type 1 Ambulances

Heavy-duty ambulances that are built to perform in the toughest conditions.

A Type I / Type 1 ambulance is a truck-based emergency vehicle. The front cabin looks like a pickup truck, and there is a slight gap at the junction where the chassis meets the care module. A small communication window (known as a pass-through) allows communication between the driver in the cab and the paramedics in the module.

Very popular in the United States and International markets, Type 1 ambulances are designed for heavy-duty applications and harsh environments. Mounted on a rugged chassis, they are available in a 4 x 4 version with a diesel engine. Designed to help paramedics respond in the most extreme conditions, Type 1 ambulance models are often more powerful, bigger, and heavier than other types.

Crestline manufactures one of the most popular Type 1 ambulance models in the US market, the CCL 150. In fact, hundreds of CCL 150 Type 1 ambulances are shipped to the United States from our Saskatoon facility each year. It has become a favorite among departments because it delivers safety and durability at an affordable price.
