What is an "ambulance light"? Does it transport victims to hospitals? If so, in a sitting or prone position on a stretcher?

Added by David L on 04 September 2011.
Each of the 74 stations in Paris has one or two of these. BSPP operate around 120, which run alongside both around a hundred other dedicated ambulances and more than thirty higher-capacity traditional fire pumpers.

They have the flexibility to carry one stretcher case and deliver basic life support to victims, but they are also able to tackle minor fires, with a 1000 LPM pump, small water tank, a cafs system, hook and extension ladders, two hose carts, a preconnected high pressure hose reel, BA sets and basic extrication equipment.

They have a five person crew, and are usually first due at any incident other than an EMS call, although they can be first due if a dedicated ambulance will take longer to respond.
