Medtec Recalling 87 Ambulances

March 16, 2011

WASHINGTON - Medtec Ambulance Corp., based in Indiana, is recalling 87 model-year 2010 Type II ambulance vans because of a potential seat belt problem, according to the National Highway Safety Traffic Association. 

The rear-facing ambulance attendant seat uses a steel floor reinforcement plate on the bottom side of the aluminum floor substructure, and the reinforcement plate is missing in some ambulance bodies. In the event of a crash, the seat belt assembly anchorage may disconnect from the floor, causing the assembly to fail to restrain the seat occupant. This poses a safety risk. 

To fix the problem, dealers will install the missing reinforcement plate under the floor substructure. This service will be performed free of charge. 

Ambulance owners can reach Medtec at (866) 263-3832.
