First (Rapid) Response Vehicle The New WAS 100 Volkswagen T6

A generous interior and various engine versions of the Volkswagen T6.1 4MOTION offer the best conditions for a conversion to a fi rst response vehicle. A perfect use of space assures both an easily accessible accomodation of the equipment and a maximal security for the crew. The interior of the vehicle has a working desk, an individual seat with seat occupancy detection, a communication
system and storage compartments – thus the requirements for the different interventions are perfectly satisfied.

Even organisational work is treated in this working area. In the rear part of the vehicle, the new modular cabinet system, designed by WAS, offers maximal storage space. Based on the experience of hundreds of fi rst response vehicles built by WAS, this new concept offers a maximum
in ergonomics and comfort. The cabinet is accessible from the inside and the outside via the side sliding door and the tailgate.

Special attention is given to the different installation methods of the mechanical devices. Even if the medical equipment is changed, it can easily be positioned in the modular cabinet system. Different cabinet modules available offer an individual design and a fl exible use. All medical devices are supplied by means of integrated plug-in connections. This fi rst response vehicle meets the high requirements of standard DIN EN 75079.
