Robust Aussie Ambulance

From EMSResponder, as reported in Medgadget:

Tank-like Rescue Vehicles that Cut Through Concrete: Australian for Ambulance

In most countries/continents, a person might be satisfied with an ambulance that drove you from point A to point B. But In Australia, you have to be prepared for anything. EMSResponder has a report on the recent arrival of six state-of-the-art ambulances in the Camden area:

The new vehicles' lifesaving features include hydraulic struts to stabalise cars that have rolled onto their roof or side or to stabalise collapsed buildings and confined space rescue equipment.
Other features include concrete cutting tools, swift water rescue equipment, a remote controlled roof mounted lighting mast, and four external cameras to alleviate driver blind spots.

The only things missing seem to be mounted assault rifles and a George Foreman Grill.
