Denver Paramedics add enhanced ambulance markings

Denver Paramedics - New ambulance contour markings

New reflective contour, door and hatch markings fitted by Denver Paramedics

Immediately after the 3rd Annual EMS Safety Summit held in Denver CO, Denver Paramedics retro-fitted enhanced reflective markings to their ambulance fleet. White vertical and baseline contour striping were added to the patient care compartment to clearly outline the ambulance body at night. The white reflective tape cannot be seen during daylight and therefore does not detract viewer attention away from the solid vehicle profile during the day. Under headlamp illumination at night, the contour markings along with the new door and hatch markings offer a clear image of the ambulance especially when the doors are open on the roadside.

The Denver changes are a great example of an inexpensive and easily completed retrofit that delivers a substantial increase in vehicle and crew safety during day-to-day ambulance operations. More information is available on the Ambulance Visibility website.
