Potential Number of Units Affected: 996
Medtec is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 Ambulances (Type I, Type I-AD, Type II, Type III, and Type III-AD) manufactured from January 2, 2009, through May 1, 2011. If an attendant lands on the bench top with great force, such as when the vehicle hits a bump in the road, the bench top screws may loosen and pull out.
If the bench top securing screws pull out then the bench top may drop into the cavity of the bench compartment, increasing the risk of personal injury.
The remedy for this recall campaign is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Medtec toll-free at 1-866-263-3832.
