REV Group has incorporated several product options into its High-Risk Infection Control (HRIC) ambulance designs to further protect patients and EMS personnel from exposure risk. These features are available in HRIC designs from Horton, American Emergency Vehicles (AEV), Leader, Wheeled Coach, Road Rescue, and McCoy-Miller.

Key design elements of these HRIC models include:

  • Isolation of the cab crew area from the patient compartment
  • Multi-stage HEPA filters in the HVAC system
  • A high-capacity negative air system in the patient compartment to control external environmental exposure
  • Anti-microbial LED lighting in the patient compartment to protect the interior environment from a variety of pathogens
  • Postable or installed EPA-approved decontamination systems meeting OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) standards.  

These ambulances have been previously delivered to the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services and National Institutes of Health — each model was configured to meet the agency's unique specifications for controlling the spread of infectious disease pathogens.
