The ambulance continued to evolve in the 1940s as did the pre-hospital  care being provided. Ambulances were faster and now featuring emergency lights. Patient care was beginning to shift from just transportation to actual life-saving skills. More rural communities started providing ambulance services as hospitals that were further away were now in reach.

Thanks for reading. Stay safe.

Shameless self-promotion alert:
If you go to my online shop, I’m selling postcards and posters featuring this old ambulance as part of a series.
