Weslaco Fire Department 'ambus' may help with COVID-19 patients
In the fight against COVID-19, the Weslaco Fire Department is deploying a vehicle normally used for mass casualty events: the "ambus."
The bus-like vehicle — which is part bus, part ambulance — holds up to 20 patients.
With the "ambus," hospitals could move COVID-19 patients to alternative locations. It could also relieve the burden on ambulances, which sometime wait at hospitals to drop off COVID-19 patients.
