Hybrid SUV's for EMS Quick Response Vehicles

A 2-year study on the feasibility of hybrid-powered SUVs for EMS quick response vehicles (qrv's) was just completed, and will be published in the July issue of the Journal of EMS. Switching to hybrids would reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of each unit by 50%. What's more, the upfront cost of these vehicles is 10% less than the normal EMS vehicle, and the hybrid SUV's are also wilderness approved, unlike many current qrv's.

Cities and counties hoping to lower their contribution to climate change should take a hard look at these vehicles, which would do a lot towards earning that coveted moniker "Cool City."
