The Middlesex-London (Canada) Paramedic Service unveiled its emergency support multi-patient vehicle on Tuesday. It looks like a city bus because that’s what it used to be.

The bus has been retrofitted to accommodate a pair of stretchers and paramedic gear and will be used in large-scale evacuations and multi-casualty incidents. First, it’ll be used to bring COVID-19 testing to the county.

The bus is expected to be completed within the next couple of weeks.
