Lakeside Volunteer Rescue Squad has a remarkable fleet of three Wheeled Coach ambulances, one quick response vehicle, and a Kubota UTV. Our ambulances are based from a van chassis and are classified as type III ambulances and all are equipped with Stryker Power Load System along with a Stryker Power Cot.
Our ambulances have multiple exterior and interior compartments to store all of our equipment which is used to help patients in there time of need. Each ambulance is equipped with a Zoll monitor/defibrillator, and a full range of both basic and advanced life support supplies and medications. All are certified as Advanced Life Support Transport Units.
Our quick response vehicle is a 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe. This vehicle is used to transport an Advanced Life Support provider to any scene. The Tahoe carries four passengers and an abundance of medical supplies including lifesaving medications and the same advanced equipment found on all of our ambulances. This was our first vehicle that utilized a low pitch tone in addition to its standard siren.
The chassis is a 2017 Ford E450 chassis with a Wheeled Coach 170\" module box mounted on it.
Our Kubota Utility Task Vehicle (UTV) is primarily utilized for special event services such as the spring and fall NASCAR Races at Richmond Raceway, and local events where a normal vehicle would be inaccessible. It is equipped with appropriate medical equipment for patient care, LED emergency lighting and a rear module that can accommodate both medical and trauma patients. It can transport patients to a first aid station inside an event; to a waiting ambulance for transport to the hospital; or directly to a pre-designated landing zone for helicopter transport.
