A Waterbank Auxiliary mechanic working on a WAX ambulance drove himself to the hospital in East River yesterday after a strange accident in the garage.
“Yeah, the TPF-4 (link) is still the best ambulance out there. The one that brought me to the hospital’s been in the shop only twice in three years. Good chassis, great features, and drives hard.”
When pressed on the nature of the injury, the mechanic said, “let’s just say that it’s important to sit in the right place in the garage.”
The Astaro TPF was signed into service with WAX and the WPD in 2013 (link), and is still considered essential by both organizations.
