Summary: Medtec is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 Ambulances (Type I, Type I-AD, Type II, Type III, and Type III-AD) manufactured from January 2, 2009, through May 1, 2011. If an attendant lands on the bench top with great force, such as when the vehicle hits a bump in the road, the bench top screws may loosen and pull out.
Consequence: If the bench top securing screws pull out then the bench top may drop into the cavity of the bench compartment, increasing the risk of personal injury.
Remedy: The remedy for this recall campaign is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Medtec toll-free at 1-866-263-3832.
