The goal of this project is to improve the ambulance compartment design in the areas of insulation, lighting and energy efficiency while abiding by the standards specified by the Federal specifications.Modern ambulances implement light emitting diodes (LEDs) that are known to be power efficient.However, Hybrid lighting systems (LED-Incandescent) are suggested in order to reduce overall power consumption while maintaining the light quality that is necessary for optimal EMT working performance. The outcome of this research in regards to efficient insulation material suggests that implementing closed-cell polyurethane foam insulation greatly improves sound attenuation and energy efficiency.
