History of Transport – QLD Ambulance

1. The Motor Car – Ambulance
In 1908 the Motor Vehicle was introduced into the Service, note that the litter was still transported out, to be wheeled on the return to Hospital.
The first Motor Vehicle Body was made by the same firm that built the first Litter in 1893 – The Federal Carriage Co.

2. The Ambulance Vehicle
Within several years motorised transport had improved so greatly that by the early 1900's Ambulance Transport was completely motorised. The litter was now obsolete.
