Immediately After, It Will Go Into Service With DC EMS


Model T Ford WWI ambulance to be featured in inauguration parade

(NECN/NBC News: Audrey Washington) – To say George King III is proud of his 1916 Model T Ford World War I ambulance is an understatement.

“This is the most accurate and most interesting project I’ve ever been a part of,” King said.

The ambulance is only one of 63 vehicles selected to be a part of the procession in President Barack Obama’s inauguration parade on Jan. 21.

The way things are going, we’ll all be using ambulances this old before we know it.

Politics aside, it’s a pretty neat project.


  1. King said he hopes the ambulance recreation will send a message about the importance of volunteerism, a mission that caught the attention of the first lady.

    Or maybe a message about the importance of EMS in general?

    Yeah yeah, I know; but a guy can dream, can’t he?

    • EMS is like a fire extinguisher. No one thinks about us until they need us. Then for a few moments, we’re the most important thing in the universe. Then they just drop us on the floor.
