One of the main questions that is then brought up when considering an ambulance remount is if a truck can be converted from a Type I to a Type III ambulance or vice versa. This is absolutely possible, and Nassau Fire has the capabilities to handle this conversion, as well as altering the type of fuel (i.e.: diesel to gas) or brand of chassis (i.e.: Ford to Chevy).
