Extract

For some time emergency ambulances have been in operation in Italy. In spite of their modern equipment, these ambulances often turn out to be unsuitable for a comfortable journey and do not have satisfactory working conditions. This is due to the lack of up-to-date standards for vehicles and equipment.
